About


Co-founder of Our Town Story. If you have any questions about the site, or wish to provide feedback, please visit the Admin forum and post in the appropriate place - we'll do our best to help you out as quickly as we can!

We really want Our Town Story to be an album for your old photos, to fill in the gaps in the history books of our villages, towns and cities. We would also love for those pictures to be able to help others - for instance by using reminiscence therapy in treating dementia

We're still a work in progress, and we appreciate all suggestions and observations!

Image Details

Date is a bit of a guess, as there's so little in the picture to date it with.

None of the thatched cottages in the foreground remain, although the name of the middle one lives on, as it was a public house called The Black Boy. A newer building on the site retains the name, although does not appear to be be in use as a pub.

Happy to be corrected on date, especially if you know when the cottages were demolished.

Hint: Drag the orange pegman to see the Streetview image...
