More about this scene


Caption for Lilbourne, The Green C1955: The photographer here looks east towards Yelvertoft Road with Hillmorton Lane to the right. Just east of the village the peace is disrupted by Watling Street's successor, the busy M1 motorway. Major changes here since 1955 include modern 1960s houses, mostly bungalows, on Hillmorton Lane, beyond the signpost, and the telephone kiosk which has migrated to the foreground Green.

Memories of Lilbourne

This was the first house my husband and I bought together - we got married in it, and had our first daughter there. We stayed until 2002 - a gorgeous cottage, which we sadly outgrew.
