Yesterday, a terrific enquiry came in from the young David Evans who’s be talking to community stalwart Doug Birch MBE about local history a fair bit lately.
I’ll let David elaborate:
Over a cup of tea and friendly chat with Douglas Birch MBE this morning he gave me this photocopy of an old railway survey plan of a familiar spot which may be some interest to your readers.
I wonder if the plan can be dated… and also a question, posed by Doug: Look at the shape of the Central School. Just when was the school extended?
There are some absolute gems on this plan and I’d like to see what you readers spot – but the question about the Central School is a good one. We know little about the original history of the place and some detail would be most welcome.
Thanks to Doug and David – always such wonderful contributions!
