memories of newmarket by across the valley
Date: 06/05/2010 Time: 09:25:02
I lived in Newmarket until I got married and then moved 'across the valley'. I've never heard of the houses under the wood being haunted, the Days lived in one side and the Furley's lived in the other, all of whom worked at Hilliers. The only other cottage I can remember was the White's cottage further along the valley.

Is it true that the stone from the Days and Furleys Cottages went to build the Binns house on Longfords lake.

White's lived in Kinley Bottom Cottage until the 1960's I think.

Was the Furley's and Day's abodes called Highwood Cottages?

Keeper's Cottage by Longfords Lake has been enlarged several times over the years from an original stone built boathouse. I was told that stone from the old Nodes Mill was used for it.

You probably meant Noel Edmund's "Crinkly Bottom" didn't you?

A few posts back I complimented this topic as "brilliant" - it still is - keep them coming

Also a few posts back, an NR referred to "Ticker" Green. In my experience this arises from word association e.g anyone with the family name "White" is likely to be called "Snowy"

So what is the story about "Ticker"?

Could be NR. In fact I screwed up and should have put my post on "Characters of Old" which I eventually did. Wozie then came up with a good suggestion

Referring back a little, the guy who built the house at Longfords, apparently owned his own quarry, so I doubt he took the stone from the cottages under the wood. Yes the cottages were called Highwood Cottages

I was looking at the site the cottages used to it on (they would have had such a lovely view), and there is nothing there at all to indicate their existance other than a few plants that would have been in the gardens. - So God knows where the stone all went to ???

Are the original families still around? When people talk of the Day family living in one do they refer to the same Day's as in Days Mill where the costume shop is?

The Days were nothing to do with Day's Mill. Jack Day and his wife had 2 daughters and 1 son, - Beryl lives in Rodborough, Pete I think lives in Minchinhampton, not sure where Pam lives. The Furleys had a son and daughter, Mavis lives at Randwick, not sure where the son lives

Brian Bailey who reports on Radio Gloucestershire on a Sunday morning, used to live with his parents and grand-parents (the Smiths) at the top of Newmarket, now called Wood Lane at The Chestnuts.

Quotation:
The Furleys had a son and daughter, Mavis lives at Randwick, not sure where the son lives

IF the son is kevin he is, or was, living in stonehouse.

I think that the stone used for the extension of the boathouse wouldn't have been newly quarried stuff, as it wouldn't have blended in with the original stone. So, it is more likely to have come from the Newmarket area.

It was not unusual to recycle old buildings and much of this went on in the past locally.
