Old Ledbury - About Us

About this website

In July 2009 my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimers. I then realised how important memories were. We got the old photos out, off we went on a magical tour of the past. We started our Family Tree and have made contact with family we never knew we had. I started to think what happens when I get old, who could I share memories of Ledbury with. So I decided to create this site where we can can share magical Ledbury memories together.
Many of the pictures and stories at this site have been initially sourced from the Ledbury Reporter and Guardian of 1965 and 1966 together with personal family photographs. Members of Old Ledbury Facebook Group are also contributing their treasured memories on a daily basis.
