Welcome to our website

Little Downham has existed since time immemorial-much of its history is still visible today although the real history the lives of the people who live, or lived, there is inside our heads.  I decided to publish online my father's pages of memories which he wrote in the early eighties and which go back to the thirties.  Since then I have added the contributions of several local people as well as the diary pages of the parish magazine from the late 19th century.   Along with the many websites which contain information on many aspects of the village's life it is surprising just how much has been said about the "village on the hill".

I would be delighted if people from the village or their descendants would contact me and tell us about their memories of the village and life there.
