Excellent photograph collection.
I was particularly pleased to discover the local links with authors Daisy Ashford and W H Barrett. W H Barrett has been one of my favourite authors all my life (because I am a fentiger too and write about the fens) and I am really sad that I missed meeting him..

Hi, I was wandering about the net idly looking for my ancestors (Drackett-Case). I really enjoyed browsing your site to find out about an area I have yet to visit. Keep up the good work.Regards Tony Haydon, Isle of Wight.

Very good site - interesting. One error - the masts on the CH stations were known as Towers. The latter were self supporting, masts were guyed. Source: Dobinson - Building Radar.

                             So pleased to see the photos of The Homestead with the Todds in the garden. I was given a gift of an
              autograph book which I believe belonged to Laura Todd. This is full of beautiful drawings and verses.
              I think your web site is very good.

                       I had a spell in the 'Brownies' at the Mission Hall approx 1952 can't really remember how long for However,
                can remember learning how to tie the knots and 'tracking' we used to play, and a camp fire with sausages at
                Carol Scales house(i think)on the street, i remember i loved to wear the uniform and polish up the shiny gold badge.
                I have enjoyed visiting your website.

I got most of my information from. It is a lot clearer to read than many other websites and very easy to understand. As I have
said already, Thank you very much. I will recommend this website to many other people.

In the recent Swan Public House photo Mrs Farrow is holding baby Colin Farrow in her arms. I am sure you can get all the names if you try. Keep it coming - especially Mr Hindles memories. Barry Parker

Richard – thanks for the amendment.( Edmund's Forge)

I am the smaller Grandchild in the picture – so spent an awful lot of time in and around the village 75 – 95, and my Mother grew up in the village and resided there from the end of the war until the late 60’s.

I do have quite a lot of photos and memorabilia from the Edmunds businesses that may be of interest to your site, as I come across them I will pass on what I can.

Once again it’s a wonderful little site you have, you should be congratulated for maintaining a lovely little piece of History

Has anyone taken photos of all the headstones from All Saints? If so, where would I find these.
cheers

Just wanted to say thank you as I have found the pages of headstones documented by the Poringland Womans Institute, I am so grateful for the information provided free. Thank you for being so generous. 
Yes Thank you Richard,
I was very grateful to find that information. I am trying to do research without spending money .. Is that laughter I hear?
Thanks to your group and your pages I found 4 relatives that had previously eluded me.
Cant thank you enough.
cheers.

Dear Richard,

It is good to see the Poringland War Memorials' photographs and information presented together on one Archive page. It certainly makes a clear, detailed history for visitors to the website to follow.

As you hold your last Poringland Archive meeting of this year on Wednesday, I wish you and the members a very happy Christmas and a bright and healthy new year.  2017 will probably bring further changes in Poringland for you to record!

All the best,
Anne                  December 2016
