The fine entrace to the 3 storey Tudor porch of 2 School Lane

Known over the years as “The Blackamoors Head” in the late 18th and early 19th centuries when it was a pub. Then the “Reading Room” in the early 1900s, for village men to attend instead of going to the village pub. Then, at times, named “Tudor House” and “Wakelyn Manor”. The gates fitted beneath the archway can be seen in this photo but also to each side inside the porch were oak seats - all of these these have now been removed.
