Recollections and Stories
On page this page I intend to print the recollections of Burbage inhabitants as well as general stories about the village. Unless they have been authored by me, the copyright and responsibilities for the contents lies with the person submitting the article. It is important to remember that personal remenisances are exactly that - personal. If you wish to discuss the contents of an article then contact should be made directly with the author and I will be happy to re-publish corrected or embelished accounts. You may contact the author via my e-mail address but I will simply acknowledge receipt and foreward it.
The first story is about a man who was very well known in the village - Alfred E. Miles. His story has been submitted by his son Richard. I am still awaiting the original photgraphs so in the meantime have published some low quality copies. These will be replaced in due course. (2/3/2001)
Following on from Alf Miles, Alex McGahey. has kindly sent his memories of his childhood in the village during the 1950s (6/3/2001)
Extracted from "Marlborough Revisited" by Margaret Wharton comes this sad story of the short life of Waler Reynolds who lived in Ram Alley. (15/9/2003)
In September 2004 Nick Eyles, now aged 30, made a sentimental journey back to Burbage which he had left 20 years earlier. (03/10/2004)
