Archive Notes:

14 High Street is to the right of 12 High Street. Originally, this was a small house with a detached garge with an upper floor. The gap between this was later filled in, as was the gap between the garage and another outbuilding, this filled-in gap now housing the indoor swimming pool.

No 20, Willow Brook in 2021, which stands back from the road was re-developed on the site of a previous dwelling which was not there in 1937 but had been built in 1938/9 - see copy of map from this era. This map also shows the village pond which is still there in 2021 but very overgown and hidden. The re-developed house is shown from agents particulars on the internet.

The gable end of 12 High Street shows evidence that this was originally a single-storey dwelling.

A 1937 map extract shows what existed in 1950.

See also record 1307 which shows the old chimney on the right.
