The First Brocket Baby Days
Clarification of the photographs of the first two Brocket Baby Days in 1997. Provided by Linda Pankhurst (Isle of Wight) - received 22nd August 2018
Thanks for today! My sister and I loved visiting the house where I was born.....!
Since getting home Iíve looked at the website again and at the photos of the first reunion. I think there are two different reunions pictured in the photos. I was at the one where there is scaffolding all over the roof. I have a copy of that photo sent to me by Brocket Hall with a letter dated 28 May 1997. The other photo was obviously later in the year.....they are in summer clothes and the scaffolding is gone.
Ed. As a result of this I have rebuilt the 1997 Photos page to point out there were two Brocket Baby Days in 1997, reorganised the photos, and included a couple of letters which give the dates. The very first Brocket Baby Day was held in April 1997.
A Secret Entrance
Christine Winnan was once told by a man who had worked at Brocket Hall that there was a secret entrance to Brocket Hall in St Mary's Churchyard just outside the main entrance. He said that the first grave on the right of the church gate is a secret entrance to Brocket Hall. He said you just need a jemmy to 'raise' it!
