Memories of Adderbury

The Lodge Adderbury House

My family lived in The Lodge (house on far right of picture) for about 47 years. The Lodge is the gatehouse to the mansion called Adderbury House which became a home for elderly after the 2nd World War. The two pubs you can see are The Red Lion (still exists) and The Wheatsheaf which is now a house.
