Naval officer has nostalgic link with his new Highbridge home

Naval Officer Mark Podbury has a strong 'connection' with his brand new home in Highbridge.

Mark has just moved into a new property at Taylor Wimpey’s Withycombe Meadow development, which is built on the site of the old Portishead Radio Station which Mark, a Naval Warrant Officer, communicated through when he was out at sea on naval ships in the 1970s and 1980s.

He told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's quite fitting that I now live on the site of the old radio station that I used to communicate with. Whenever we were at sea and wanted to call home, we had to go through the Portishead Radio Station - so it's lovely to have a nostalgic connection to our new home."

Mark and his wife Kelly moved into their property a couple of weeks ago and are now settled in and enjoying their new home.

He added: "I was brought up in Burnham-On-Sea and my family live close by, so Withycombe Meadow is perfectly located for us to keep in contact with relatives, whilst being close to the seaside too."

Mark and Kelly are pictured being handed the keys to their new home
