Bedfordshire Reports

Clapham, Bedfordshire

Review of Clapham by Peter McNaughton on February 18th, 2006
I was brought up in the beautiful village of Clapham and spent the formative years of my life there at 22 Clapham High Street rom 1944 to 1949. My god mother, Ada Askew, lived there. My father was there from 1941 before being sent to the Royal Engineers where he served at Normandy, Belgium and Java and Sumatra. I have wonderful memories of long hot summer's days with the sweet scent of the countryside wafting all about. Our friends were the Ruck family who lived up the Warren - a magical place. My brother David and I will be revisiting the village on the 28th February and look forward immensely to our walk down memory lane. David lives in Crieff, Perthshire and I in Montreal, Quebec. Hope to have lunch in the Swan Inn right opposite where we lived. Can hardly wait!!:)
