Volume One

This was the first book we published ourselves and it came out in time for Christmas 2011.
The sub-title of the book is '......and occupants past and present'.  Each chapter covers a single
house and most were by different members of the Group.

Chapter One

We found while researching for this book, that some houses had changed their names over the years.  For instance,
house number 1 on the map, now called Lavender Cottage, was previously Rose Cottage.
It was built by Henry Read in 1891.
