Here we have a great old photo of Downs Ward from may years ago. I would guess that there are 40 homes in the picture compared to the 1,200 we now have.
I wonder what residents thought about development a century ago… If you have any clues to help date the picture, or can identify your own house in the image, then please let me know.
I will award a bottle of wine to the best ‘modern day’ photograph of the same aspect.
Just no trespassing please! Closing date, Christmas Eve. You should be able to save the picture by right clicking on the image.
Many thanks to Cllr Sara Schillemore from Catherington Ward for the photo.
