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!

I have just found this sight from my cousin in New Zealand,and I am finding it very interesting, as my mother was born and bred in Tunstall, we had a lot of lovely holidays when I was a lot younger,down there. My Mum's name was Kathleen Bailey, and she had a brother Jimmy, so I would be most grateful to anyone who reads this, that has any information on the Bailey's,where they came from originally,ect. I would be most gratefull.Kind regards.Carol Boyne

I have many happy childhood memories of when I use to visit my Grandparents Nora and Geoff Ling. Grandad would always be singing and dancing at the Blaxhall Ship on a Bank Holiday Weekend and we would go for many country walks. I love looking at the old photographs and reading up on the history of Blaxhall using the site - Keep up the good work.

Your site is excellent, full of information. My great grandfather Charles Pratt was from Little Glemham who moved to Scotland in the 1900s and his mother was Lucy Jay from Blaxhall.

Just checking Blaxhall out before coming down with some friends to stay at the youth hostel this weekend! It looks lovely - and quite safe, considering it is "over the border" from here in Norfolk!! Seriously, I love it all round there - great scenery, good walking and good food!!

What a fantastic web-site. I remember visiting the Ship as a young lad throughout the seventies. We always used to go on summer holidays to Suffolk, staying at my Uncle Basils in Sproughton. I remember once, probably about 1973, we were all in the ship one summers night and I ended up playing the bongo drums. I expect it was to accompany the 'famous' folk singing that took place there. I keep saying that I will come and visit, and one day I will.
