    Good example of a well-maintained dry stone wall.

    Frank Filer’s cottage next to the parish church, demolished in the 1970s I believe – the edge of the grass triangle is just visible in the foreground.

    Again, such great knowledge, Sheila. My dad sometimes used to mention the Filer family. Dad was one of the eleven children born into the shop that you may have known as ‘Sammy’s’ on the steep part of the Bath Road above what used to be Gordon Lyons’ petrol station.

      Wow, what memories! My four brothers had their hair cut at ‘Sammy’s’ in the late 60’s. My Dad would buy a newspaper and, if my sister and I were lucky, we got a Crunchie to share while we waited, for what seemed like hours, in the Land Rover outside.
