Tom on Comfort Tanners Hatch - Finding old friends (113* d) RE: Tanners Harch - Finding old friends 03 Oct 99


Wow, it's neat to hear about the hostel again. I stayed there one night about 20 years ago (December, and pretty chilly). It was beautiful, though it was a good long walk from where the nearest public transportation dropped us off (with backpacks & all).

Nobody got into a song session that night, but there was some story telling. Can you tell one about the old owner of the house? If I remember it right--didn't the building get damaged during World War 2? And after the war, a company of volunteers went out to repair it. And met an owl, who was the embodimet of an old wise woman who used to live there. (That's what someone told me anyway, probably figured I was some gullible Yank who wanted to hear ghost stories.) But now their little hostel stamp is the image of an owl. It's a rainy weekend here (St. Louis), maybe I'll go rooting through an old box or two to see if I can find any of that...

Good luck finding the people you're looking for.

Tom
