Naval officer has nostalgic link with his new Highbridge home
Officer Mark Podbury has a strong 'connection' with his brand
new home in Highbridge.
Mark has just moved into a new property at Taylor
Wimpeys 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
