Photo of Blacksmiths Lane, centred on the Old Forge, showing the new windows replacing the old mullions seen in KL055.
To the left of this house is the new (1964) build in part of its old garden. Behind, with the washing on a 'whirligig', is Rose Cottage, made out of two older cottages there when two back land developments were joined together to make Blacksmiths Lane in the 1950s. Behind that is the gable of the old (possible mid 18th century) barn to Mannings farm.
At the extreme top, left of centre, can be seen part of the old Quaker Meeting House, built in 1690, then in use as a builders store. It was knocked down the next year and the some of the stones used to build the maisonettes on Lime Avenue.
