#An Appeal for Historical Photographs

The owners of the Old Vicarage in Church Lane are busy restoring it to its original condition. As part of this work they are trying to establish the design of the the original gable facia boards which seem to have been replaced at some time in the past with plain boards that are now rotting and need to be replaced.

It is thought that the original boards might have been similar in design to those on the porch as shown in this picture and they wonder if there might somewhere be some old village photographs that include the vicarage showing what the gable facia boards looked like at the time.

If anyone has old photographs that show the vicarage Mrs Helen Slack at the Old Vicarage would be most grateful to hear from you. She can be reached at Hleslack@me.com

It's been an icon on the Green and even became known as The Millennium Falcon when Pokemon — Go was popular! But the wood has rotted and woodpeckers have have pecked holes in the pillar on which...
