It took a while to work out the exact position from where this very old photo of Waltham must have been taken. (Click the image to expand it.) Today you’d be looking across the Melton Road towards Regent Services, with the tower of St Mary’s Church in the background.
We’re hoping to get a better quality copy of the photo, but it looks like there’s an entrance through a pair of large gates into a small paddock, with a couple of small farm buildings – one tiled and the other thatched.
We think this lane must be the one that runs beside the garage today – up to the car park at the rear. Alan has taken a photo showing the same scene today. Click here to view it.
