Allan, that's great.
I've been wanting to see the cottages next to the White House, my Grandmother was born at No. 7, which is the one next to the White House.
The cottages had been pulled down when I was born, but I remember the White House.

Brilliant pic I remember Barbara Hill used to live in the White House. Has anyone got a photo of Beech House on the other side of the green, this eventually became the British Legion
