Bygone Geddington – a view of life in the 1920s
Over the next year we will be publishing extracts from the journals of Margaret Holding, daughter of George Holding and originally resident of Dallington House, Kettering Road and later of The Bungalow.
With the permission of the current owner of the journals, Mr David Valentine, we are able to take a step back into the past and revisit aspects of life in the village over 90 years ago. Margaret Holding clearly loved the village, the countryside and the characters she lived amongst. She paints a detailed, often humorous picture of a slower, but in many ways harder, way of life that had existed for centuries but which was changing rapidly following WW1.
We hope you enjoy the monthly reports and a glimpse back at an earlier Geddington. All the articles will move to the History section on the website in due course so that they can be read at any time.
The first article will appear later this month.
