Share the Love: 1975

Posted by Marj Davey on Friday, 22 May 2020

Back in 1975 ...

Back in 1974-5 Mum, Dad, two brothers, my friend and I came by coach from Colne in Lancashire to Butlins at Minehead.

Whilst there we had a day trip to Lynton & Lynmouth, we all fell in love and extended our holiday to spend three extra days in Lynton!

The following years we returned, walked to Watersmeet, went swimming in the river, played cricket on the grass by the pitch-and-putt. I remember swimming in the old Victoria sea swimming pool and watching cricket at the Valley of the Rocks.

Mum & Dad are no longer with us ... but that first holiday started a life long love of the area. I'm so lucky to live in the South-West. Exmoor and it's beautiful coast and moorland are my second home.

Thanks Mum and Dad xx
