Henbury Online helps to solve a mystery!

Earlier this month we published a request for help to try and find old photographs of the Old Vicarage on Church Lane in Henbury, to help with the restoration.

We are delighted to report that the appeal has proved very successful, and the owners of the Old Vicarage received numerous offers of help. They now have a photograph of the Vicarage from 1947, which gives just the information they were looking for.

Mr and Mrs Slack are really pleased with the outcome, and asked Henbury Online to pass on their thanks to all who offered help. They have promised to send photos when the work is complete.

Well done Henbury residents!
