I visited Blaxhall Common/Village on Sunday, very pleasant except for the very windy conditions.

I am wondering why the rock has been placed in the village sign between 4 prongs, prank or deliberate. I have a picture of it on my Blaxhall page on the site below

Nice site you have

Some very interesting reading in the Guest Book.
Well I was able to visit Blaxhall again, this time with my daughter Anitra who is resident in Cardiff and we spent a few nights at The Ship during July 2008. What a wonderful village and area, I was sorry to leave. The menu and preparation of the food at The Ship was top class. I was disappointed though to find that the Ship guest book of previous years had disappeared.
As a point of interest, my mother was born in Bury St.Edmunds and my father at Manningtree, although he spent a number of years in Aylsham.
Congratulations to the Landlords at The Ship Inn and all concerned with this Web site.

I havent been on your site for a little while and it seems to have grown, which is lovely. I'm still looking for information on my great grandfather Ellis Keeble, great grandfather Benjamin Keeble, and his wives Sophia Ellis and Mary Ann Thurston. Be so happy to hear from anyone that has info.

Thank you for your comments; if you want to contact the Archive Group directly, please use the contact form, just remember to check the option about the History section of the site.

Again great site ,keep up the good work.
Have some photos would like to share.
One of the Choir at the church and a couple of my dad,one taken at the playing field.
Seem to remember my family being considered "outsiders" even though my family lived there for many many years and now both my folks are buried at the church.
Want to be part of the community so sending these photos is so part of that.
Let me know how i can send them or to whom.
Remember,warmly,the many folk nights at the ship. The BBC with mikes all over the ceiling. The darts matches. Many a drunken night there,my second home.
Also the fights with the yanks from the base. Clive Woolnough was one tough cookie. his brother Colin was the tame one but still very tough.
Good memories,all of them

Re the LINGS,CABLES and KEEBLES; I'm grateful to all at this site and especially those from the Ling family that left comments subsequent to my recent post. I have made contact with cousin Keith and suspect we will have much to talk about. Paul also emailed from the USA. I know David and Alec are also out there somewhere and O.K. but where is Jennifer? If any any of my Cable relatives are about i'd also be glad to hear from them - Harry Cable/Lillian Keeble were my Grandparents on my mother's side.

I was back on your excellent site today and looking at the page on the Rope and Bates families, which is very helpful. One little thing: the link to my website didn't work for me.
Thanks for the information about the broken link which has now been fixed, regards, Jonathan

Surely the best village website on the 'net!? Am doing my family tree, Barber, Benns, Tibbenham, Sharman, Cable, Keeble and Ling. The last three are on my deceased mother's side Brenda Eleanor Cable(husband Fred. Barber) and I have very little knowledge of any of this side of my family. If any of you are out there I'd like to make contact and I'd be very grateful. There are only two of you that I remember from my early boyhood, Keith & Alec Ling ...... come in wherever you are. Hope to hear from you, Jim B

I am Paul son of David Ling and Patricia Rowe, Grandson of David "Nipper" Ling & Lily Cable. My Great-Grandfather was Esau Ling. This site has brought to me history about the Ling's as well as the village. Any time I meet someone new called Ling I put them onto this web site! Thanks for the history and knowledge.

Thanks so much for the archive recordings. I only had a few opportunities to go and sample the magic that was the Blaxhall Ship but listening to the recordings keeps the memories alive.

I particularly remember the time when our chartered Thames sailing barge got to Snape Quay and we walked with our instruments to the Ship and were joined by others for a really good session.

An experience to savour!
