Snow heaving in the bad winter of 1947. Perhaps Stanley Ayres at far right.

    That surely must be Stanley Ayres on the extreme right. He used to work for Thomas Henry Calver my Grandfather and later for Harry Calver my Uncle at Station Farm Stanhoe, My wife Diane and I always have a trip to Norfolk (once a year from Bedford) and we generally drive through along Station Road. I used to visit for a fortnight's holiday as a child, virtually every year 1947-1965 latterly helping Harry with the harvest. I'm currently adding images from my Mother's Family album as a Word Document with old photos scanned in and my own memories, for a Calver Family re-union planned for 17 September 2011 but at Northwold. My mother was the youngest: Iris (Miggie) Calver born 2 June 1909 d.29/3/1994. The Calver Family is commemorated on a brass Plaque in Stanhoe church. We have also obtained a copy of the Tenancy Agreement dated 13 March 1896 and its plan of the 131 acre Station Farm. There is also an ariel photo taken I guess 1954 showing the Farm Yard and buildings and my Uncle Harry's new house, roofed then but not completed for over 12 years. Station Farm was sold off out of the family when Harriet Blanch Calver (Harry's Widow died during the mid 1970's although her niece: Mary Wagstaff (nee Trett) inherited retaining only Station Farm Cottage and a small plot of land - the original Calver Family home which is currently for sale.
