My Nan lived at Chilmead on Cormongers Lane. Her father was Mr Arnold pictured above.

Her name is Betty Arnold,born 1923, and currently lives next door to me. I am going to show her these photos later on today.

How did you come to have them??

In the 1940`s I spent many happy hours with Fred Arnold riding on the tractor at Chilmead Farm. I also helped Tom Bassett with the horses. It was Fred who taught me to drive and encouraged me into agriculture.

John Elphick and I used ride on the back of the tractor with Tom Arnold during the school holidays,even drove the tractor so Tom could have a snooze,drove also during the harvesting.Tom Basset used to have a seat on his old Fordson Major for daughter to sit in,Tom always had a pipe hanging from his mouth.

I was born at Chilmead Farm in 1949 and Fred Arnold (above) was my grandfather. I remember being given pushed down the lane in my pram by Mable Bassett and I remember the milking she'd and the bull in the yard. I also spent many happy hours on the back of the tractor and riding the cows back from the field for milking. We used to visit the Stevens family who lived in the cottage on the bend of the lane. I have a photograph of the farmhouse and photograph of my grandfather that was in the national news when he found the body of gentleman who had committed suicide.

My Dad was Norman Stevens, he lived at Cormongers lane, along with his brothers George and Ray. Their Father ,Walter,worked as a gardener. Is this the Stevens family you refer to??

Somebody must remember the stately house close to Chilmead Farm. Owned by the Reeves family. They most likely owned the farm at one time. The house was not on Cormongers Lane but on the road heading across the marsh.
