That's one of George Moore's first impressions of Langport, when he was evacuated here in 1939 at the age of 10.
He and his granddaughter Christina have donated George's account of his experiences to the Langport & District History Society. You can now read his memoirs on our website
George came back to Langport in 2016 to revisit his old haunts. The attached picture shows him with his grandchildren, Alan and Christina, in front of Brooklands, where he stayed when he arrived in 1939.
The History Society is very grateful to George, and welcomes other local memoirs, which can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
