Message for Mabel Tappen

Thank you for your enquiry about Woodfalls School. We do have information in our archives and as soon as I have extracted it I will let you have some details.  It is always interesting to hear from an ex-pupil.  Was Miss Jean Dolman a teacher whilst you were there, as she has written about the school during The Second World War?  I have tried to copy and paste the email address which was included in your email to our web-master and have also tried several variations but the messages keep being sent back to me.  Could you check your email address, or send a message from a different email address?

Regards, Carolyn Birch (Chairman of Redlynch Local History Society)


Calling all ex-pupils of Miss Wort’s School in Vale Road, Woodfalls!  Do get in touch with Barbara Hickman (thehick@btinternet.com) and share your story.  We want to have this recorded for our own oral history project.


The Society was founded in 1996 by Pat Millington to promote interest in local history in the Parish of Redlynch.  There are monthly meetings with speakers talking on a wide variety of topics to cater for all interests.  The meetings are held at 7.30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month at Morgan’s Vale and Woodfalls village hall.  The Society arranges a local visit for its June meeting.  There is also an Annual Exhibition when its resources are put on display and made available to anyone interested in our local history.

If you would like to contact us, please use this form , or speak to one of the committee members at any of our monthly meetings.


Finally the Society actively supports other local organisations, such as its two churches and two halls by mounting exhibitions and displays.

Please have a look around our website, and feel free to ask any questions
