Thanks Denis......once again, a TIPF member has posted pics from one of my all time favourite places ever....I have fond memories of cycling the 135 miles  to Wells aged just 15 years, for my first ever independent holiday...a pal and I did it two years running...the years 1954 and 1956...just after the devastating East Coast Flood. All the trees on the camp site were dying owing to seawater flooding and we had to pitch our tents on about three foot of beach sand washed over the sea defenses.

Just few years later, my good wife to be and I enjoyed a camping holiday there....followed by many more much later with our children and, after retirement...

lovely memories get stirred up whenever I see pics of Wells-Next -the -Sea.

 

The pics here are part of these memories...hope you don’t mind Denis?

 

1: Yours truly aged 15 cooking on a Primus stove....note heavy canvas tent and covered bikes...the dying pine trees and deep beach sand on the camp site.

2: A colour sketch circa 1960s  by me showing a similar scene to one of your pics....

3: My good lady wife doing what she enjoyed doing at Wells......but this was drawn at Combe Martin during another holiday
