The bottom of White Street, Easterton

Once upon a time, if you turned into White Street there was Kandy Cottage and the bakery before you reached Court Close Farm.

The scene looked like this, and as we have seen before it now looks like this.

...and after 'improvements'

This was done to allow traffic to go faster in those days when cars and drivers dictated what happened. It is the remnant of the building that we’ll look at today.

If this building looks familiar then it could be because we saw it in a painting that Mike was doing at the Community Hall open day. This is the photo that Mike was using.

It is in a sad state and as Court Close Farm and its buildings, including this one, has recently sold, then this rather ancient structure must be at risk.

Despite its state, it has a real charm about it although we struggle to see how it fitted in to any of the original buildings. Perhaps it can be saved, but if not at least we have photographic evidence.
