Building Tyrrell's shop in 1897-1899.

First brick built house in the village, despite the Rector offering the use of the quarry for free. Brickwork is 'bastard bond', one row of headers and 3 rows of stretchers, very weak. Not usually used for houses, normally used for factories etc., as it is cheap and quick to set out and build. Syd Tyrrell says that the main bricklayer on the job, Thomas Kinch, came from London and was so fast that he needed two labourers to keep up with him. Now we know how he managed it.
