SHM test photo gallery

Aerial photograph from 1920s showing allotment gardens on the bend and two of the Brewery Cottages on the right which were demolished by a bomb in WWII and never rebuilt. In the 1960s another building was added, set back behind the remaining cottages and designed to look Victorian. Known as 'Coopers Cottage' this reminds us of an early skilled trade within the brewery - that of making wooden barrels.
Originally sited by the Victoria Jubilee Fountain on the Green, the Horse Trough dates from 1902. Most Horse Troughs bear the date of their installation, but this one also carries an inscription "Here is water prithee think - Does your Dumb friend need a drink". The telephone box dates from the 1950's and the wooden bench - sadly stolen in September 2020 - dates from the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee in 2012

This is a test to see how we could use a POST with the layout option called  Photo Gallery
