Old photos

Here are two photos we have been given recently by Paul and Ginny Broomhead, showing the great heap of spoil left when the building’s bay nearest the pond was demolished, or collapsed, several decades ago. The Broomheads removed this pile of clay and timber. Our new extension occupies the same area.

Here for comparison is our only picture of the building when it was complete, taken in 1932 and reprinted in a book:
