Growing up in Wootton, Frances Bates All three of us - my older brother Martin and I, and our younger sister, Claudia - grew up in Wootton. Both Claudia and I have a particular fondness for winter. We were both born in February, six years apart, in heavy snow and childhood memories of winter are dominated by tobogganing and skating. We used to warm our feet in the bottom oven of the aga after a day spent speeding down the hill and across the ice at the bottom, swerving just in time to avoid ending up in the river. The valley floods in winter and one year, when it froze, we had a skating party. Dad put night lights in jam jars all the way down the hill so we could carry on skating after dark. Then there were the dogs. One of my school friends recalls the hay bales stacked at the back of the garage where Candy, our Labrador, had a litter of nine puppies. Another time, she had them in the kitchen. That’s when we found out that the internal wall was built with straw bales. She somehow removed the render and made a nest and had her puppies right there, under the ironing table. I guess we must have gone without ironed clothes for a bit. No one seemed to notice though.
