Hungerford Arcade: A Special Memory

Hungerford Arcade holds a particularly special memory for Richard and Irene Middleton. In 2006 Richard purchased a ring from one of the stallholders here, and immediately after paying for it, he got down on one knee and turned to Irene to ask for her hand in marriage. Right in front of the desk! Now every time they come through, they are reminded of this special moment. 

Richard and Irene recreating the special moment.

Richard likes to think his knee-print is still embedded in the carpet. I couldn’t let them leave without taking a picture of the moment re-enacted and of course, a picture of the ring that started it all. Now happily married and living in Cornwall, the arcade will always hold a special place in their hearts.

The ring that started it all.
