Me, my dog and I. Plus an orchard and a reed bed and lots of exciting memories.
Turn up your sound.

Another flowering beauty that bloomed every Spring on Widbrook East, sadly I seems that this is no more. I am talking about the Marsh Marigold.
So turn up your sound.

In the clip number 4 I have brought up the history of the extension of Maidenhead into the Parish of Cookham in 1934. The Southey fields have a lot of happy memories, for me it was my happy hunting ground for rabbits.
So turn up your sound and watch and listen:

We now come around to a little known or remembered air crash that took place in  Lower Southey in August 1940. So turn up your sound and listen.

The map this time covers a much larger area and also goes back to Saxon and Danes and a battle that was fought along the Cliveden Reach. Next week I leave for the South Pacific for Christmas and New Year. I hope to have fresh tales in the New Year.

Like last and for several years now we love to get away to our island paradise of Rarotonga. While I am away and the days I am not filming, I will be listing more history of the Cookham of yore!
So a Merry Christmas to one and all. So turn up your sound for some local island flavour:

Just to say that we have arrived safe and sound on Rarotonga, and enjoying the Maori hospitality. I have been Drone flying and  gathering more video and still material.
So once again have a Merry Christmas.

We are now back and recovering from our annual trip to the Cook Islands and to digging up more village history. I now go back some 83 years when I started school at Holy Trinity and my first teacher a Miss Collins. Also recalling some of those who attended my class during that period. Yes you may find your mother or father or grand parents mentioned here:

So turn up your sound, you may learn a little family history.
