Archive Notes:

Photograph of Dr Barnes and Spot. He lived at The Elms (now Mulberry Court) and was the first person to have a motor car in Wheatley. It got stuck in the flood at the end of the High Street in 1910 (there is also a report that he rowed down High Street during this flood, but why would he have had a boat?).  At one time his surgery was at The Crest, 37 High Street, and he kept his gig in the barn at the back in Church Road. He retired in 1925.
