Barry Hope

Barry Hope

Born in 1940 and now aged 73,  Barry Hope is a very well known and popular man, who has lived in Silloth since 1973.  When still a youngster, Barry and his family came every year to Silloth for their annual holiday.  He can vaguely remember the air raid shelters on the Green and he remembers that during the war years, the family bungalow in Skinburness was let out as a billet to RAF personnel. As the family always came for the full month of August, they stayed in a caravan at Moordale, and Barry has many happy memories of their time there going fishing with set lines on the West Beech and selling the flat fish they caught to other holidaymakers.
