Outside Rose Villas. Taken in 1967 to show the "galletting".

Looking west. At the turn of the century it was so unusual to find anyone taking a photograph that a crowd soon formed, especially of children. In the photo on the left you will note that the photographer had 16 keen observers! Note the lad standing in front of the line, over his head can be seen a row of cottages known as ROSE VILLAS (Built 1822). Note also the grapevine on the gable end of the house on the right. The photographer must have been stood with the Elm Tree directly behind him as the tree is visible in the photo on the right.

Looking east towards the Elm Tree on a winters day judging by the lack of leaves. The last days of William and Freda Hockley's bungalow. The house on the left stands where Rose Villas once was. The back of Hockley's bungalow before demolition.
