Weston-super-Mare, Somerset
Weston-super-Mare is a seaside resort on the north Somerset coast about 18 miles west of
Bristol. The town's development as a resort began in the 1840s with the coming of the railway,
which encouraged visitors from all over the country, particularly from the Midlands. My mother
used to take me there during and just after the war. We stayed in a boarding house, queued for
hours for Midland Counties ice-cream, and wondered where the sea was when the tide was out.
