Brokenborough, Wiltshire, England

Brokenborough is one of those small villages hidden in the beautiful countryside that surrounds Malmesbury.  It has an air of contentedness - attractive houses with pretty gardens in peaceful surroundings.

The church of St. John the Baptist is found on the main through-road.  Our photographs of the church can be seen at:  Brokenborough St. John.

For many years Mandy's Gladwin family lived in a house in Brokenborough - between them being blacksmiths, teacher, sunday school teacher, coal merchants, bakers and postmistress.  As well as school teacher, Alice was the postmistress, so when there was a customer she had to leave the children for a few minutes.  One gentleman we have spoken to a number of times recalled when he was a young boy going to Alice's funeral.  Alice had been his teacher and the children were told to wear their best clothes to school, and went to the church for the service.  He told us everyone loved Alice and remembered her with fond memories.
