Topiary

If you ask older people when something happened they are inclined to say, ‘oh, I suppose it was about five years ago’.

We have certainly been told this about a rather elegant piece of topiary that used to be in front of houses on Parsonage Lane. We have seen the topiary before (click here).

The topiary did survive into the colour photo era and can be seen on this image which dates from the early 1970s.

There it is, outside number 8 Parsonage Lane and still looking much as it had done in the 1930s.

Can anyone tell us (for sure) who cut this tree into its shape, When they first did it and just when the tree was removed? We’d love to know.
