What is the round structure on the roof? As all the windows are open we can assume the weather was hot. 1915 From Maureen Reid

In East Hall Meadow, close by the corner of East Hall Farm is a kissing gate. When the Upcher family lived at the hall, the villagers had to use this gate and the path beyond it to make their approach to the kitchens. The Upcher family used to make weekly distributions to the poor of soup and dripping. The gate then became known as the "Dripping Gate".
