  • Memorial Seat (and Myrtle House) - a history

    On the Plantation at the Three Ways Corner.

    Camera facing NE.

    Among the plans to celebrate the Festival of Britain in 1951, drawn up by a committee formed from representatives of all the organisations in the village, was the provision of seats in various parts of the village.  They were handed over to the Parish Council in November 1951.

    In the background of the photograph is Myrtle House.  Stone gable ends, front rendered, slate roof, hipped.  3 s[torey].  Sash windows.  Sloping roof-lights.  There is a much older cottage at the back but much alteration has taken place since a fire many years ago destroyed the part that was the village shop.

  • The Plantation

    View of the Plantation showing the octagonal oak memorial seat that was built around the chestnut tree to celebrate the Festival of Britain in 1951 On the right of the figures grouped around the signpost is the village shop, then owned by the Co-op (Cooperative Wholesale Society).  The index to the original WI slide collection refers to the Plantation as the Green.
