Childhood memories of growing up in the 1940s
David Seville was born and lived in New Buckenham, the son of Horace a cobbler. He won a scholarship to Thetford Grammar School and eventually became an architectural draghtsman working in Norwich. A later major project was Norwich’s Castle Mall development. He designed and built his house The Town’s End overlooking the common on the site of a former abattoir. He was a leading early proponent of the football club and was one time chairman of the New Buckenham Society. He self published his memories of the war years in New Buckenham including that of a mid-air collision between two Flying Fortresses over the village.
