From Joan Lidgate (nee Eltringham) - Newcastle upon Tyne - 2014
As a frequent visitor to Ravenstonedale over many years I have never been able to find any records or reference to the evacuees who came to the village in Sept 1939. Are there any records? I know this is fairly "recent history" compared with the history of the village which is on your site but even the Millenium Quilt doesn't (as far as I remember) have any mention of this momentous occurance. Please can you enlighten me to any information you may have on this subject?
