Early Photos of the Estate

These photos were sent to us by Mrs Rosemary Westwood who used to live on the Estate (South Lodge) when she was a little girl. Also shown in the photos are Rosemary’s sister, mother and father. Her father (Mr Simons) was gardener for 35 years and one of his jobs was to cut all the grass!

Whilst we don’t know the dates of the photos, they were probably taken around the early 1940s, and mainly for the family photo album. However, it’s good to see that very little has changed in terms of the surroundings!
