Personal Stories of Bidford
Oral Histories from Bidford
Compilation of our local social histories involved interviews with a number of local people, many of whom are sadly now passed away. Their recall of earlier years of the C20th in Bidford provide rich viens of understanding of life only 2 or 3 generatiosn ago.
Below we provide documented reminiscences of five people covering predominantly their recall of school days in the 1920's and 1930's.
There are two fuller documents also.
- In celebration of Frank Speirs recent 90th. birthday we worked with Frank to capture memories of life in Bidford during the whole C20th.
- Bob Marshall is much younger than the other contributors. He provides a personal historical account of his life from the Early 1950's until 1970.
Simply click on each name to bring up a PDF document of their reminiscences.
