Memories of Martinshaw Lodge, Ratby. (also know as the Woodkeeper's Cottge, situated on the edge of Martinshaw Woods just to the west of the village of Groby).
My Great Aunt, Aunty Betty Wood, (My fathers Maternal Aunty) was born in 1912 and lived all her life (apart from her last few years) in Martinshaw Lodge. Her parent’s had lived in the Lodge and when she married my Great Uncle Ian he moved into the Lodge and stayed with Betty and her mother.
I remember visiting from being a young child in the 1960’s until the late 1990’s. (Betty died in 2002).
