Oral Histories

We have collected a number of oral histories of Milton Abbas residents. These have been saved as WAV files and are available to members.

They are awaiting transcription.

We are continuing to collect oral histories. some residents have lived in Milton Abbas since 1935, and many more arrived shortly after WW2.

The second world war was an interesting time in Milton Abbas, with the NAAFI here in 1939  and the names are recorded on the 1939 Register. American troups were billeted here in the woods and along Catherine’s Well. There is some physical evidence of their occupation.

Some residents have written up there memories and these are available to all on the Memories page.
