Top left, Syd Reedman, pictured in his teens outside what I think was Wisteria House, demolished many years back. Syd lived in Chesterton before moving to Warmington where he lived until his death. Pictured below that, Gladys Bass, sister of Sid, pictured with cats June and Larry. After living most of her life in Chesterton Gladys died suddenly in 1980 aged 66. Again, I think that the photo was taken outside Wisteria House. Top right, pictured in April 1961, the wedding procession of John and Annetta Peel leaves Chesterton Church. Annette, daughter of Gladys Bass, lived her whole life in Chesterton before passing away in 1991 aged 52. John Henry Peel lived in both Alwalton and Chesterton and was a popular and well known figure before illness took its toll in his latter years. John died in 2004 aged 69 years. Pictured bottom and three great servants of St Michaels church and Chesterton in general who are no longer with us. Pictured far left is Elsie Baldwin with Mr Leslie Hydes centre and Lucy Glover second from the right. Also pictured are Mrs Hydes second from the left and Liz Glover far right. Thanks to Terry Glover for the photo.
Below, top left and pictured standing on the right is George Arbon. He lived for many years in Chesterton before moving to the East coast in the late 1970's. A very gentle man who loved speedway, George's Ashes are buried in Chesterton churchyard. George is pictured with brother Roland Arbon, another long time resident of Chesterton who passed away a few years before George. Pictured above right are Mr and Mrs Blackwell who lived in a cottage near to the old coal yard. They were part of Chesterton life for many years. Bottom left, not residents of the village but a loving tribute put up by the family of a nine year old girl and her father who were tragically killed in a car accident in the village in July 2003. This tribute was put up to mark the second anniversary of their passing. God bless them both. Bottom right, William Reedman leaves Wisteria Cottage. William was co owner of the coal yard that traded in the village in the 1950's. Picture was taken in 1957, two years before his death.
