Rooftops circa 1880 - 1890
Photograph of rooftops in the centre of the village, possibly taken from a window of Wheatley House, at a time when there were only four buildings along the north side of Church Road east of the Parish Church before Friday Lane, circa 1880 - 1890. However, the 1910 map shows only 3 plots with houses on it, so the interpretation of the rooftop photo may be incorrect with only two houses on the north side of Church Road visible, numbers 45 and 47 Church Road (the two similar looking ones with 'white' roofs, while 49 church Road (set back) was not visible
45 Church Road is called Iliffe House after William Iliffe Pike who lived here, as evidenced by the 1910 valuation survey.
A photo of 47 Church Road is attached
