Whilst I did not know Charles, the Wetherill family were living at Stubbing Hill when I lived in Sutton. John and Peter were the brothers who lived there then. I know Peter passed away some time ago but lost touch with John. Was Charles the son of one of them? Please pass my heartfelt condolences on to the family.

Charles was the son of John Wetherill and was twin brother to Christopher, he also had younger sister called Emma.
He will be deeply missed by many people, particularly by myself, Liz, Sam, Sean Davy and Andrew Hawker.
John and his wife Susan now live at Flasby.
Thank you for your message.

Thanks for the information. Should you get the opportunity to speak to John, please remember myself and Denis to him and give them our condolences. The other names you mention bring memories of childhood flooding back. Davy and Hawker were both well established families. Sorry that the circumstances had to be as they are.

Please can someone tell me if Stubbing Hill is off the West Lane on you right as you go up the hill, and could anyone tell me if John Wetherill would be in his early 70's, and if it was he with whom I used to ride out, for he adored horses as I did.

If I am right in these details and anyone sees him could you please remember me to him. These details would have been right back in 1947 onward and my name then was Diana Bedford and my mother had the shop next to the post office, which I believe is just a house now. many thanks diana.

Hi Diana - yes, Stubbing Hill Farm is off to the right as you go up West Lane. Paul

John Wetherill is the father of the young man who passed away. He is also the John that you refer to and is now in his early 70's. Slightly older than me and younger than Denis.

So many thanks to you both. The years have fled, so there are not many in Sutton now who would remember me - I did leave a little bit of my heart with you thought.

I would love it if someone would pass on my good wishes to him if they bump into him. A memory jogger is the day that his horse went into a bog and did not jump it. My email address can be given to him.

Many thanks again.diana.

How wonderful to have your message, hope you are all well and fighting fit. I should love to hear any old stories for yesteryear.

Today I me memory has been your father coming to meet me from the station with his trailer Tony, he had offered to pick my horse and I up and take us to Joe Harries' aunts farm. Then, I had not been back at my mothers five minutes after bedding the horse in when Olive Radcliff - Friend's daughter with Muriel Brown were at the house to invite me to go to the village dance that evening.
I went with them and from there on I found that the whole village were all as lovely, and the atmosphere of the place was magic.

luv to you all, I often think of the people I knew there, so you will know who I am thinking of if your ears burn. Diana.

As Charles' father I would like to thank all his friends who stood by him during his final years, all those who attended the funeral and so generously donated to Manorlands, and all those who have written to us and posted the above messages. Am I right in thinking Alan is Alan Pickles. If so my best wishes to him and my thanks for his kind message. My memories of Diana are happy ones, not even spoilt by the time to which she refers when I was stuck in a bog. Her good wishes at this sad time are much appreciated

Just a correction. Charles was Charles Edward and not Charles John

Thanks for the reply. Yes it is Alan Pickles. Our thoughts are with you and your wife at this time. We know how you feel. Take care of one another. Nice to hear of you after all this time, sorry the cirumstances are as.

I knew John and Peter, though not very well.
My condolences to John and all the family.
IMy memory of Stubbing Hill Farm is winter sledging in the steep field that swept down to West Lane.
At the time we lived in Hall Way, so it was only a 2 minutes walk away.
Hi, Tony, - Pina had a hear attack a few months ago.
She is well on the way to a full recovery and I am fulfilling the role of Florence Nightingale !!!
