Black and white image from what is now Mawby's Lane between the Church and the Almshouses (shows walls of both) looking down at the Moat House from 1920s.  Includes a young man with a bicycle and a child (at site of current bus shelter).
This view of the Moat House is no longer possible due to both hedging on Mawby's Lane and trees in front of the Moat House.
