A Worcestershire Childhood
A Worcestershire Childhood:
Growing up in the South Worcestershire Village of Wadborough 1945-1956.
Revd. W. D. R. Smith
What was it like to grow up as a child in the years immediately after the Second World War in a small village in South Worcestershire?
This is an attempt to describe a childhood recollection of family, community and daily life in the last years before the advent of mains water and sanitation, electricity, freedom of choice resulting from war-time rationing, private vehicle ownership and world travel all became commonplace.
As a sequel to the book Wadborough: A Portrait of a Village in Worcestershire in the 1950s (also published by Aspect Design) it offers a description of a rural childhood up to the completion of primary school education.
