I think this site is wonderful - what a great resource for the village and very interesting to find out about past and present. I didn't know we had so much going on. Thanks for your effort, much appreciated.

I lived at The Gables with my family from around 1958 to 1959. My father was stationed at the Wimpole Park hospital. I have numerous photos of The Gables - both house and grounds - from that time, as well as a few other photos of Meldreth, including my little brother in the stocks shown in a photo on your site. I really enjoyed visiting this website. Thanks!

Having grown up in Meldreth, and now serving a 4-month tour of duty in Afghanistan, I would like to congratulate you on a wonderful site which has been a welcome reminder of life back at home. Keep up the good work, I am sure that there are others like me for whom it is a significant morale boost!

You have a magnificent website: never seen any village have such a one.  My ancestors, Simon Patten and Sarah Hayden, are said to have married in Meldreth in 1812.

I was having a quiet moment thinking about my past when I came across this wonderful website. I was in the RAF with Colin Mead who lived with his Mum and Dad and sister 'Drina' in the railwaymen's cottages at Meldreth Station. I was often invited to their home when I was on leave. I spent very many happy days here including Christmas. Coming from London this was a life style that I fell in love with. Mrs Mead worked at the Atlas Factory and I have found a photo of her on this website. I always remember her wonderful smile (and her cooking) and seeing her again brought a tear to my eyes. This was 50 years ago and sadly we were posted and went our separate ways and lost touch. This website is how all websites on local history should be, so interesting. Well done to you all and good luck for the future.

I lived in Meldreth for 22 years and have very fond memories of my formative years. The website is great. I think every village should have such a resource to bring the community together.

Happy memories! A great website! I have so many fond memories of growing up in Meldreth between 1976 and 1987 and attending the school too. My granddad (Sid) lived on Whitecroft Road and I can remember many visits to the "bike shop" which was over the road - Mr Harper? His shed had absolutely everything you could ever need. I have not been to Meldreth since the late 90's - maybe a visit is due soon.

I would like to thank you all for having such a wonderful website. It has given me a better understanding of life during the 1700s & 1800s in small town England. I am descended from the Worland family and live in Queensland, Australia. It has been a wonderful eye opening experience.

Many thanks.
