Just seen the North Walsham Guide feature in the May edition of Just North Walsham and I have to say I don't know how Daryl does it for the money ;-)

Hi Andy, Before Roys had the Yarmouth Road store it was Gateway and before that it was FineFare. I can't remember whether it had changed it's name to Somerfield before it eventually moved to Mundesley/Bacton Road and finally became Sainsbury's. before all of those it was the cattle market I believe.

Hi Jim, Rounce and Wortley is no longer on Hall Lane. They were took over by Barnwells of Aylsham about ten years ago and finally closed down altogether making way for a children's play facility. I remember going for my first job interview at Rounce and Wortley in 1986!

hi there,
I grew up in north walsham and I'm just going over old memories with my wife who isn't very well and we were just trying to remember the name of the last couple of owners of the shop on yarmouth road before roys of wroxham took over, any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks Andy

My family were farmers in Swafield and other villages around N Walsham for years - would love to get in touch with anyone who can provide more history and also info on Rounce and Wortley which I think was started by them - thank you best regards Jim Wortley

Just testing the guestbook is working OK again, we had a couple of reports that there had been some problems. It all seems fine, please let us know if you experience any further difficulty with this page. Thanks.

I live in Melbourne, Australia and my ancestors came to Oz in 1912. I have traced my mother's family LARNER back to North Walsham. SAMUAL LARNER is my GGGG Grandfather and he was a builder in North Walsham who moved to Winterton on Sea. He was married to Amelia and had 10 children.
I believe Samual's father to be THOMAS born 1751. Married to Sarah Helsden in 1777.
I would appreciate any information about either Thomas or Samual or indeed any Larners who may have come from or live in North Walsham,
Jenny Bunn.

Just to add to message below - i think the couple I stayed with the man's name was Herbert not Hubert. I also remember working with a man called Derek at Smedley's - he would have been in his forties or fifties then in 1972 and a pretty blond girl called Debbie - she would have been about 18 then. Be really nice if anyone remembers any of the places or people I can recall.

Don't ask me why I chanced to look up your website and write to you but you might find this of interest. I worked for a summer in 1972 in Smedley's factory in North Walsham before going to university. Smedleys produced canned vegetables and fruits. I worked for two months July and August and stayed at the Angel Hotel with other girls my age and then I went away and came back mid-september for a further month. I stayed with a Mr and Mrs Sayers - they would have been in their mid - late twenties then and I can't recall any children then. They lived in a modern house for the time. Mr Sayers first name was Hubert and I remember he had very curly hair. I don't remember Mrs Sayers first name. They were very nice people with a great sense of humour and I felt at home with them. With my workmates I would go to the Feathers Hotel quite a lot and the Mucky Duck (black swan). I only remember the names of a few local people I worked with -Alistair Sinclair was one - his mother the writer Olga Sinclair and a Mr Plummer was on the management of the factory. I also remember going to a cafe/restaurant sometimes on a Sunday afternoon - it was on a corner site and was called The Copper Kettle or the Singing Kettle - something kettle. North Walsham was really nice but much smaller I think then - very much more a village than a town.
