Memories, Recollections and Nostalgia

Orginally published Jul 2021

Personal memories, and the sentiments they evoke, even if sometimes coloured by the passage of time, are perhaps the only meaningful way of our retaining the essence of a time and place.

In this digital age, with so much instant access to 'hard facts' and images via the internet, providing us with a so-called objective view of the past, it is nevertheless the fond (and sometimes unpleasant and frightening) memories of childhood, adolescence and young adulthood that remain with us which gives us a real sense of the time.

Below is a collection of mainly pleasant memories of Winsham people - some of them supported by photographs. People who have either lived in the village, or maybe just experienced a brief interface with the community that has nevertheless remained with them for the rest of their lives. They are worth reading and looking at - they come from the heart. If you have memories that you would like to share, please pass them on to the Wnsham Web Museum.
