Great Oakley Vicarage, Corby, Northamptonshire
1950 – 1954
Great and Little Oakley, Northamptonshire.
(P.B.Buckett) is the first visitor in July (3rd-7th) “Very nice staying with you
all again and seeing your new house + surroundings. Glad to revive memories of
Kettering days. Judith is a little duck!”
Tony is our cat and dies at Great Oakley. Robert born 24 July 1952. Wilfred our next cat came to us and somehow coped with all the moves. He was still with us at Milton Malsor. W.R.Buckett visits September 1953 and no hint of immanent removals.
Great Oakley Vicarage - very much as I remember it.

Great Oakley School in 2011. It was a single class school covering all
ages. My first school at the tender age of four years old. Our cat
Wilfred was welcome and he liked the old boiler we had. Miss Biring was
the teacher and I maintain she was the best any child could have had.
She was very kind to me.
