A wonderful site well put together. My dad Kenneth Spittey was born in Dursley in 1919, sadly he passed away in 1996, anyone with recollections of my dad or his parents and sisters please contact me. Thanks in anticipation, keep up the good work. Best Wishes Malcolm Spittey

Lived in Upthorpe, Cam, went to Rednock, ran for Dursley Athletics club. Ran miles around the area. FANTASTIC country side. This site brought back so many memories. Emigrated to N.Z. and now live on the Gold Coast, Australia.

Nick Powell where you at rednock around 1976-1980ish

Thanks for a great page that brought back many memories. I lived in Cam/Dursley between 1950 and 1959 and have many fond childhood memories of the area. The audio of John Humphries rekindled memories of riding the footplate between Coaley and Dursley on many a weekend - my grandparents lived behind Coaley Station. Again many thanks for a great trip down memory lane. Keep up the good work.

I lived in Dursley from birth until 1983. I went to Highfield junior school and then went to Rednock. I then went to Dursley Tech. I lived in St. George's Road until I married and moved to Watford. My family still live there, known as the Trinders. Love to hear from anyone.

Very nice site you have here and very informative. I did live in Dursley but moved away to live in Gloucester.
Dursley's a great town and many of my family still live there. Keep up the good work cool

Born & bred in Dursley but moved here in 1991. I still think of "Diesel Town" as home. The site is absolutely brilliant (well laid out, it must have taken lots of hard work) and the old photos are fascinating. Although I've see a few pics in the 'around Dursley in old photos' books series there are quite a number I hadn't seen. My Father was in the Fire service in the late 60's/early 70's so that particular section brings back fond memories!

Maybe a sports section with photos and history of clubs etc would be good.

Andy Thursday, 27 May 2004 11:18
Thanks for the message Richard. I have many, many more old photographs and documents to go on the site and one section that I certainly intend to add is for clubs and organisations.

Thank you for your website. We are leaving tomorrow for Europe and will spend the last week at Owlpen Manor. After printing out various Cotswolds towns, I must make sure to spend a day in Dursley and Uley.

I really enjoyed looking through the photos of Cam & Dursley, old and new. It's a really good site and even though I have never left the area I found it very interesting.

I really enjoyed the site, it brought back many memories of Dursley and Cam. I lived in Cam until I was 13, then we emigrated to Canada. That was in 1981 but the area has changed a lot since then, I have to take my girlfriend to see the area so she can experience the area.

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the site - it brought back many memories. My grandfather was Ted Talboys the blacksmith. I've not visited for nearly thirty years, but it still feels like a second home to me.

Great to read about Dursley, I hope none of the people involved with demolishing what were then, and even more so now, interesting buildings around the town, have anything to do with planning or development, in areas I would consider historically important.

Having lived in Dursley for many years before moving south we found the information very informative and brought back many fond memories. May the web site be interesting to many others. A good job well done.

Hello, I am an American friend of the Child's family on Kingshill Road. I spent 17 days in England in 1998. I loved Dursley, Cam, Glos and all of the Cotswolds. Although I am from a small New England town in the USA, I miss seeing the green rolling hills and the sheep hanging out on the roadside. I remember distinctly sitting on the banks of the Severn River watching the Bore role through...and yes I do recall it raining most of the time I was there in late April early May of 1998, but I loved England anyway. I left my heart in the UK.

Lucked onto this excellent site whilst looking for something else. Very nicely designed and easy to navigate even on dial-up connection. My Father was a GP in Dursley from 1929 to 1965 and I have many happy memories of living there until I left in 1957. A site to come back to whenever I need a "nostalgic fix".

Dear Brian, I have great thoughts about your Father, who brought our two children into the world. They are now contemplating retirement in a very few years making me feel old.

John Rose Saturday, 18 September 2004 05:02
Hello Brian
I was an evacuee and lived at Ashmead Green, Cam, 1940-45 and quite possibly went to your father's surgery.
I am compiling a family tree and trying to find some information about my Aunt and Uncle who lived in or Newmarket, they both died in 1971 with no relations in Canada.
I recently sent a letter to the Public Trustee in Toronto but it came back "address unknown."
I wonder if you could advise on any contacts that I could try.
My email is
John Rose

Hello Brian, I believe I can picture your father although of course it's been many years now. Our G.P. was Dr. Fraser who was a colleague of your father. I believe Dr. Faulkner may have been a third doctor but I can't be sure. Mr. McMeakin (probably mispelled) was the dentist.

Brian Saturday, 29 March 2008 20:10
Yes Graham, Faulkner was # 3. Not sure about McMeakin's spelling. I can remember many a session sitting in the big chair looking down onto the street whilst he worked on my teeth. Another memory just dropped in my brain - John Wood (?) from Castle Farm delivering milk in a single horse (dray) to the back door of Galen House often, so my Mother claimed, seasoned with a bit of cow tail. Talking about Castle Farm, I remember watching from my bedroom window the cows going out to pasture as the workers were coming into town. Of course the reverse occurred as the cows were coming home and the workers were heading there too.
