More about this scene


Caption for Acle, the Bridge Inn c1955: By the mid 1950s, the Bridge Inn had a flint porch, thatched to match the roof. The area outside had been made into an attractive garden where refreshments purchased at the annexe could be enjoyed. Drain pipes and telephone wires indicate the arrival of modern conveniences. Today the annexe has lost its pretty little porch and become a souvenir gift shop, and the lawns and flower beds are a car park.

I have been searching for it. My e-mail is sjlatshaw@comcast.net ~Susan
