The entry in Vol Two states: This property is outstanding for its remarkably fine outbuildings, dated 1837, perfect inside and out in every detail. Great prosperity and house pride are indicated here. Even the bakehouse and fuel store have fine doors with fanlights. The article continues with an explanation of how bread ovens work.

Notes and references

  1. Described in estate agent's advert as The Oaks Manor. This is not a manor house
  2. The exact nature of this property is somewhat uncertain. The picture at the top left appears to show the main house, which is now known, without any real justification, as The Oaks Manor. The picture in the box at the top right shows the extensive outbuildings behind, which are now separate residences
