Nottm born & Nottm fled

Recommended Posts

Born in a house on Hereford Road, Woodthorpe, moving to Woodthorpe Drive when I was still a few months old.  This was my home until I married in 1966 (although I also lived in Nurses'  Homes in Harlow Wood Hospital and subsequently in Leicester Royal Infirmary from 1960 - 1965/66).

We lived in Aylestone, Leicester for 10 years, but went to stay with my parents in Nottingham every other weekend.

Then we moved to a village called Cottenham in Cambs in 1976.  Up to 1981, when my parents moved to live with us, we still visited my parents' house on Woodthorpe Drive as often as we could.  

We have lived in our present village, still in Cambs, since 2011 and expect this is our last move until - as an old man we know said - "you move into a smaller wooden house with no windows!"
