History

Here we are looking up School Hill towards what was the New Inn, kept by Albert Howard, who started supplying fuel for the new motorcar, perhaps in addition to beer for the passengers. The petrol pumps were still in situ when Frith's photographer took this picture. The school, which is still flourishing, is on the right just round the bend - note the old 'torch of learning' school sign. The school opened on this site in 1915. It was built using timber from Russia.
