The Grange is a hidden building in Easterton. It is along the main street but is hidden behind a high, evergreen hedge.
Those chimneys are what you see these days but it wasn’t always so. In times past The Grange was a Public House, known as ‘The Cow’ and landlords would have wanted it visible. Even though its role as a pub went 150 or so years ago, it takes time to grow a barrier hedge like the one shown so The Grange was visible in Edwardian times as shown in this postcard.
There we see quite a handsome house. There is a wall, a low hedge and other shrubs but The Grange is clearly visible.
How many people do you see? Is it 4, 5 or 6? If you don’t make it six, the chances are you’ve missed the chap standing on the wall.
The other people are all together.
The Grange clearly had quite a grand entrance.
What a lovely image of a scene now lost from view.
