My parents Dorothy (Dot - nee Brownett) & Edward King lived in the Mill residence when I was born, staying with my grandparents Mr & Mrs Brownett. Mr Brownett was "Head Gardener" at the Swan Hotel and I understand they were renting the residence. Both parents were in the RAF, married at St Mary's church at the end of the war - I was born in 1949. My Mum - Dot Brownett, had siblings Jack (Air raid warden) and Nelly. A lady called Ethel lived in the adjoining cottage heading up the hill towards Ciren. After we moved up to Crick/Rugby in the Midlands we regularly visited Bibury for long weekends and school holidays thru ~ 1969 when Nan Brownett died in Fairford. Grandad Brownett was killed some years earlier (1955~60) when he was struck by a heavy lorry while delivering "a food hamper" to the "Manor House" from the Swan on his bicycle/trailer combination. I reckon this picture is around 1968-70 ? Is ayone spots this and has feedback please write.
