  • Douglas says:

    Hi my wife lived in Yaxham as a young girl her name was Janet Pummell, Parents are Emily and Oscar, Oscar was a postman! Thay lived in a house called Windy Brae, Paper St. Does anyone know her. that cant tell her whats going on there?

    • Cathryn Osborn-Vergerson says:

      Hi! Wow, you probably won’t get this as it’s over 10 years ago you commented on this but… worth a shot! I live in Windy Brae, although not called that now! We moved here in 2006 and it’s now called Kendle House. We have done huge renovations and an extension to the house, it is crazy to see the before and after pictures, doesn’t even look like the same house. It is my mum and dad, who are in their 50s, and me, I am 19, and also used to be our dog Pippa who passed away Sept 2019, who live here. Oh and a couple of chickens and the deer and the pheasant who all love to visit our garden. It is a little haven here. It feels like we only moved in last year I can’t believe it’s been nearly 15 years. I will tell my mum about your wife and her parents, she will most likely do some research herself as she loves history. Hope you are keeping well in this Coronavirus lockdown.

  • Martha Hurley says:

    Hello, Can anyone tell me about an old manor house that was (and perhaps still is) across the street from the train station? I lived in that house for three months when I was three years old (1954). It was so cold my mother kept us kids dressed in snow suits inside the house. If anyone has or could take a photo I would really enjoy seeing what the house looks like today.

  • Martin Garbutt says:

    I visited Yaxham reguarly in the 1980’s. Stayed at what was then called “Field Cottage” on Cutthroat Lane, Yaxham. Though during my visits the name of the road was often painted out to read Cut Thro Lane. Does anyone know what happened to the cottage, is is still there? Thanks

    • Olly Oechsle says:

      Yes, Field Cottage is still there on Cutthroat lane, now under new ownership and is currently being extended.

      The Cutthroat lane sign was amended a long time ago by one of the lane’s residents who thought “Primrose” lane would sound nicer. He got as far as renaming it to “Cuthrose Lane” before my father saw the alteration and painted it back.

  • Graham Cobbold says:

    I am trying to re-establish contact with the former students of Cliff College 1961-62, Cliff is a Methodist evengelical training college in Derbyshire. An internet search for David Allcock referred me to your village website 2004 when a David Allcock gave a Gospel message at your chapel. If anyone knows David’s contact details could they kindly e-mail me at graham.cobbold@ntlworld.com? Thank you.
    PS Brilliant website! I enjoyed reading it.
