One thought on “Wood Hall”

  1. My great aunt lived in Woodhall for many years from about 1920 until about 1960, and was friendly with Mrs Blumer. I have a photo of myself as a six year old with my dad , my great aunt and Mrs Blumer during a holiday and a visit to Semer Water in 1953. If you are interested, drop me an email, and I will send the photo and some more details, Thanks, David
