Edington Monastery Gardens

We know from previous posts that Edington Monastery Gardens was a popular destination from Market Lavington. We have seen photos of the Congregational Church treats at this venue. You could click here or here or even here to see posts about the gardens

In one of the posts we featured a card of the gardens, but here we’ll look at that in more detail.

First of all, we’ll look at the credits on the card.

Our very own Mr Alf Burgess (or his sons) took the photos and made the card. A chap called F S Marsh owned the gardens.

Certainly a Frederick Sugden Marsh lived in the area. He was a shop keeper.

Mr Burgess has taken a variety of photos in and around the gardens.image005

This photo was taken on one of the Market Lavington Congregational Church outings.

Edington Priory Church – these days a venue for concerts as well as services.

Once again we see our Alf Burgess with an eye to the main chance. Presumably this card could be sold to visitors from elsewhere.

    Are there any Pike descendents in Market Lavington?

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
