    Hi. Did this used to be called the Shrubbery, and do you have any knowledge of it when and if it was the Shrubbery because my grandmother Mary Howe was a servant there,

      No this is not The Shrubbery : what is now called The Old Parsonage(?) more recently The Rectory opposite Body & Soul in the centre of the village was the property known as The Shrubbery before it became the residence of the local Rector.

    No it wasn’t The Shrubbery – this is the Old Rectory near the Church, reached by the long drive next to the school on the A368. The Shrubbery is next to the Village Club, it was also known as St Aldhelms for a while, occupied by a Mrs M.L. Hamilton. From 1958 it became The Rectory and more recently The Old Parsonage. The Shrubbery was a guest house for a while. Do you know who your grandmother work for? Was she related to the Howe family in Glenshean?
