I'm intrigued to know what actually went on there.
Such a contrast in weather today compared to our open day last Sunday when it was so very hot and sunny. We thought the heat would put people off coming but we had over 125 visitors which was amazing. Many thanks to all of you who came. We raised £400 in donations and sales of our leaflet, which will go straight towards the costs of the renovation of the cottage. We hope the physical restoration will be finished or almost finished by our next open day which is Sunday 12 September. ... See MoreSee Less

Had our wedding reception there in 1975.
I had my 13th birthday party there it was a lovely place to visit ❤️
Loved it there, they had a mynah bird who used to swear which was a great attraction for the kids but I’m sure an embarrassment to parents
Im sure I remember Grandma taking me there Sarah Harlock, Paul Coombs
Had my wedding reception there in 1973
Used to drive the Morris minibus in the picture for George until he bought his Bedford CF vans in the early 70's.. Fun times...
Worked there evenings, weekends, holidays from when I was about 14 until i finished University at 22. It was hard work, but good fun.
It did look just like that ...and no cars !
I had my wedding reception there in 1964, Pam Chapman née Gillard, of Combe Down
Worked here from 1989-1994! Happy Days! Weddings galore there would be 2 at least on a Saturday in the summer and the tea gardens would be open to the public it was soooooo busy!
That brings back happy memoirs ..going to rainbow woods , then having tea in there ..happy days ...no traffic or buses then ...1960-1975
I wish... Thats how I remember it. No traffic no overgrown verges and trees.
Anyone see relatives related to Combe Down? I have some. ... See MoreSee Less
