MAY 2016 - WOOD SCULPTURE REPLACED AT CHANDLERS ROAD ENTRANCE
The original wood sculpture at the Chandlers Road Entrance had started to rot, so John James kindly carved a replacement.
SEPTEMBER 2016 - HIGHLANDS ROAD ENTRANCE
I came across two old photos recently, of when houses were being built opposite the Highlands Road Entrance during 1982, then took photos from the same viewpoint on 26th September 2016.
The view has changed somewhat during those 32 years !!
