Winteringham People

Winteringham people montageIt goes without saying that it is the people of Winteringham that have made it the place it has been, and that it has become.

This section is concerned with just some of those, but we’d like to add more - please send in any details of people that you think ought to be on the website.  Photographs are always welcome, and be assured that many people would be very interested.

The War Memorial is featured on the ‘We Shall Remember’ page, together with the names of the men on that memorial. 

The Scarbrough page features fascinating photographs of the Scarbrough family from the 19th century, together with original notes by Peter Jamieson to whom I am greatly indebted for his time and effort.

Hewde LaneWho in Hewde Lane?

Hewde Lane was previously known as "Puddingpoke Lane" - a Puddingpoke being an evil spirit or ghost, as the Hill was supposedly haunted.  We now discover that in the 1980s, a fresh report of an evil spirit was reported, when a tall man in black followed a young village lady home, and stood looking in her window before disappearing!  For further details,  Click here!
