Henham High Street
High Street looking towards the shop and the Independent Chapel. Concerning the first house on the laft-hand side, Di Suckling recalls Freda (nee Hollingsworth) Dixon living on the left-hand side there with her family until it was demolished in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Herbert Neville and his wife lived on the right-hand side. Michael Cornell remembers Freda living there until it was pulled down and they moved into the old council houses just after the war. Michael lived in the Bury Cottage which is not quite in this picture until early 1949 when he also moved to the new council houses that were built in Mill Road. Pat Meads remembers playing in the unhabited property as a child and recalls it being tiny inside.
