    The television aerials are for the BBC and ITV’s original 405 line services. The latter’s broadcasts began in 1955, serving London, but could be received here.

    We all attended the original Coton Cof E School under headmistress Miss Pike and Miss Thornton. Miss Thornton transferred to Old Hunstanton Primary School.
