The Old manor had a legend that highwayman Dick Turpin made an escape by taking the cellar tunnel under Church Road to the Hind's Head (the white building).
At Sandy Lane Infants School, my friend Andrew Balfour lived in the Old Manor.
He showed me the secret tunnel. Its reputation was more interesting than its reality.
Ye Old Manor Hotel had a metal scroll-shaped sign, but on the top of the Gallow-pole that suspended it was a metal depiction of a highwayman holding-up a coach.
This was the hill-top on the Ascot Road. It's hard to see the Maidenhead-Bagshot road that crosses it here, but this must have been a significant trade junction.
The cattle-market behind the right of this picture was like a town square.
Older people said it was grand.
