Archive Notes:

Postcard of Littleworth with a second copy showing where some families lived c. 1939. This photograph was taken from the track leading up from south of the ex-engineering works, in 2020 the car wash, towards the house known (2020) as Mill Winds. This view cannot be seen today.

TThe Shirley family lived at No. 33 and the Smith family at No 22. Auntie Smith, as she was known, grew marvellous garden flowers and vegetables, and she rode an old sit-up-and-beg cycle for years. Her house, the thatched Littleworth House, see record 1827 from a 1932 photograph, backed onto the brook and then the railway lines, and was to the south-east of Kellys Cottage. It was pulled down c. 1950.

Others were the Oakleys; Surman market gardeners; Cribbins (39 Littleworth); Jack Smith (daughter was Gwinny Reid) (54 Littleworth); Currill family (20 Littleworth).

A copy of the Victoria County Histroy record is included.
