Cottonmill Lane – Margaret Brown

Margaret Brown, born 1928, remembers Cottonmill Lane as being a narrow lane with footpaths, how it was mainly fields, and allotments with little or no access to other roads from the lane. For example, she remembers her mother telling her that she had to get to Prospect Road through a hole in the fence as the bottom half was just fields.

    Hello Margaret, not sure if you remember me I used to be married to Vera Faulkner’s son Richard. I had been reading the history of St Peters school and came across your name about Cottonmill Lane. Hope you are keeping well. I now live on the north Norfolk coast by the sea and look after my farther in law who lives with us. So nice to see a face I remember.
