Battle High Street

Robert Campbell:

Jack Barry: Jack,
regarding your message board posting last year regarding the WW2 bombing in Battle High Street. I noticed something on that, maybe a newspaper article and picture a while back, on the Parish of Sedlescombe website.
If you are still looking for info on this please let me know and I will search around my computer favourites folder and send you more about this.
Cheers

Battle High Street

22nd March 2006

Robert Campbell:

Graham Brown: Graham,
I just noticed a message you posted on the Battle Message Board about 12 months ago, regarding the Abbey Hotel which is opposite Battle Abbey.
Just this week I received in the mail two old photo/postcards which were posted in Battle in 1905.
The pictures were taken looking down the High Street, with the photographer probably set up in front of the Abbey Gates.
These show among other things sheep being herded up the High Street, the Star Hotel on one side, with a brewery a few doors further down the High Street. On the right hand side is a large ivy covered building which I am trying to identify, some horse and carts, and a public house called "Abbey Turner Hotel".
Is this your establishment? Would you like a copy of these sent to you via e-mail.
cheers

Hi,
in the mid 1960's I used to work for a building surveyors called Ramsden and Allen. Their offices were in the High Street at the Battle Abbey gateway, and possibly above a cake/devonshire tea shop.
Is the building still there?

Family History of Vidler

22nd March 2006

Robert Campbell:

Sylvia Wallace: Sylvia,
in the mid 50's to early 1960's I attended the Primary school at Broad Oak, Brede, on Udimore Road. Around 12 month's ago an old mate of mine sent a school photo of us kids taking part in school play or pageant. Among the names he listed of the "cast" was a Simon Vidler, (his birth date would have been around 1948-1950 by my guess. Broad Oak is not far from Battle so do you think Simon may be part of your family?
Cheers
