Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope I am not boring you with Heydon, but it is such a beautiful little village and despite the rain, I was eager to record as many details as possible.

This is the main road in Heydon; I will show the opposite end of it as a workshop. It may surprise you.

The through-road, shown on the Tithe map (c. 1836-50) ran from the northwest, through the village passing the parish church and Earle Arms coaching inn.

In the early 19th century expansion of Heydon Park, by the landowner, resulted in the closure to the public of this through-road. Today, the village is only accessible from one direction which maybe, accounts for how little it has changed.
The village retains an old-fashioned character with no new buildings having been added since the well house commemorating the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria was built in 1887.

The other end of this road is seen in my workshop.

I wish you a safe and happy week, Bev :-)
