Wellingborough Zoo 1943 – 1970

WELLINGBORO ZOO

THIS ZOO WAS  OPENED BY JOHN STEVENS AND HIS WIFE IN 1943 … THIS WAS OF COURSE DURING THE 2ND WORLD WAR YEARS AND UNUSUAL FOR A NEW VENTURE TO BEGIN.

THE ZOO CHANGED HANDS TWICE MORE DURING ITS LIFETIME…. REGRETTABLY IT CLOSED DOWN IN 1970 IN A SOMEWHAT DISGRACE AS THE ANIMALS WERE SEEMINGLY NEGLECTED BY THE LAST OWNER

THERE IS MUCH MORE TO BE SAID AND WRITTEN ABOUT THIS ZOO..

SHOULD ANYBODY HAVE ANY COMMENTS OR HAVE ANY FURTHER LITERATURE ABOUT THIS ZOO OR ITS OTHER PROPRIETORS I WOULD BE HAPPY TO HEAR FROM YOU…. FOR EXAMPLE THE SECOND OWNERS A MISS SUTCH AND A MISS SMITH  WHO WERE THEY AND WHERE DID THEY GO TO ?  MYSTERIES TO BE SOLVED
