Chodds Tea Gardens

With the increased traffic passing through the village by bicycle and motor cars Chodds Farmhouse was brought into use providing refreshments for the travellers.

I am concerned about the large gaps between the bricks on the chimney on the left. I think the mortar has washed out, but it’s a bit late to warn them now!

It is interesting to see the newly-planted trees which are now such a feature of the High Street. Little did the trees know then that they were to be regularly pollarded in their later life!

The Large Version shows a close up of the signs and the rather stern-looking lady with her dog, perhaps a cocker spaniel. To my eyes she bears a close resemblance to the lady in picture #410.
