Bringing the past to life
Villagers and former residents take a trip down memory lane to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The past was brought to life in a special exhibition in Combe Raleigh to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Villagers and former residents were able to take a trip down memory lane with plenty of photographs, documents, books and handicrafts from 1653 to the present day to look at.
A section of the village school, which closed in 1946, proved popular with visitors who attended the exhibition at St Nicholas’ Church.
Plans and photographs demonstrated how the village has changed during the last century.

The book of silver jubilee memories and the Millennium Recipe Book also brought back memories of more recent celebrations.
Former resident Norman Pulman, whose grandfather built the village hall in the 1920s, thoroughly enjoyed the display, and said: “It brought back so many memories of what life used to be like.”
