Does anyone know the origins of Cam Memorial Gardens (not sure if this is the correct name). It is just past the Railway Pub on the left hand side.

I have a photograph of my mother on the steps

We used to play in there when children, but don't know whether it is still there

There used to be a village hall there as well

I remember the fish ponds there. The band stand was still being used. Best of all was the smell of Steel's bread opposite baking

The Cam Winterbotham Memorial Gardens opened officially on 13th July 1937. They were built as a memorial to Herbert Brend Winterbotham (1867-1925) and Blanche Anna Winterbotham (1872-1934) and made possible by their daughters. The Winterbothams lived at Norman Hill House and owned Cam Mills which closed down for the day to afford employees the opportunity of witnessing the ceremony.

Thanks for the photos. You quite right, that what is left of the memorial gardens is now part of someone's private garden.
