i would just like to say what a fantastic site!!!

Brings back a lot of memories, espeically looking at the pics of the old south denes caravan park. Such a shame it has gone.

Although I always puzzeled what the 2 strange strucutres were / arein the sea at south denes, and still do to this day?

Keep up the fantastic work.

Based in Edinburgh but from Fisherrow fishing family, in Scotland. What a wonderful site, it is great that someone is getting the fishing heritage recorded before everyone connected with the old days has passed on. The Fisherrow fishing families on the east coast of Scotland came from Holland and the Flanders in the 1550's and dutch boats still came to Fisherrow to pick up salt for curing until the 2WW. Many of my relatives followed the scottish fleet to Yarmouth and then on to Newlyn for the Autumn/Winter season. The women went as well. Guy cold working on the quay at the gutting yards. I hope the project prospers.

Can anyone remember a story about a caravan that exploded? ItĀ happened around 1954. The gas bottle had a leak. My grandparents and father were involved and would love to see any pics relating to this story. Think it was in the Gorleston newspaper.

If anyone has any photos of Deneside before BHS swallowed up so much of it, would appreciate a look. We lived at Victoria House, No 1 next door to the BHS goods entrance but never took local pics. Thanx in anticipation

Dear Ron, regarding the 2 postcards of the Gorleston pageant. In the first one, the gentleman in the red robes who is facing to the right appears to be my Grandfather Rev Augustus Bennett. We only yesterday came across another postcard of him at the Pageant; we believe he was depicting St. Peter. Do you know of any copies of your postcard for sale? My Mother (his daughter) would be very interested! Kind regards Jon Ward, Malvern UK

Wow! This is a truly brilliant site! I found the pictures, personal stories and information riveting. I have only been in Yarmouth 2 years and love the many of the older buildings. I have found it very hard to get well documented history on the area until I found your site. I wish more people would contribute and shall be asking people to share your link so that they can spread the word. Thank you to all who have contributed to this brilliant site and shared some great memories.
