Two Properties In The 1930s - a Memory of Aston on Carrant.

Before the Second World War my grandfather, Donald MacVitie, was a builder who renovated properties in the Cheltenham, Tewkesbury area, often living in them during or after doing the work. The Old Forge at Aston-on-Carrant was one of them. I believe that my grandfather also did some work on The Manor House in the late 1930s and I have a brochure outlining the forthcoming sale by auction of the property on 28th June 1939.
