I have been non-productive in respect of updates to the main Parlington history site, and also the day to day comments site, here, for the last month. The fact is lots has happened since the previous post, too much to mention at the moment. Anyway this weekend is the end of our era at Parlington and also the fifteen years I’ve lived in Aberford, I am downsizing and moving to Tadcaster! All good things must come to an end, and in fairness most of the previous inhabitants at Parlington went out in a box! Well up to the death of Colonel F C Trench-Gascoigne in 1905, I’ve less than a useful knowledge of the people who spent time here in the remaining twentieth century. Some I know about others came and went and have left no record.
