chrishall-rog-Dormers-1960

This view of “Dormers” is probably from the 1920s or ’30s, although this view looked very similar as recently as the 1960s. The road is much wider now with modern houses on either side. The thatched building on the right no longer exists.

Rather strangely it almost appears that there is a house behind Dormers to the left.  There was indeed a house there once.  It was a tiled house and is the cause of the meadow off Hertford Lane being called Tile House Meadow.  However the house was unoccupied in the 1901 census and by 1911 had disappeared off the census record.  So is that really a house in the photograph or just a phantom house created by the pattern of branches of the trees…

For a glimpse of another house through the trees, although definitely a real solid house this time, have a look at this picture of Palmer’s Lane.
