This was used by Dominic Cherrelli?? as a workshop. The bell in the tower was a bell from one of the scuttled german battleships. Wonder where it went when Dominic took over?

I can mind being in it a few times at sunday school must have been just before the war. I think we were given "Morning Rays" a leaflet for the starters. The older ones got a different one the name of which I cant remember!!(old age) Ithink that Sunday School was stopped during the war .Even daily school was suspended for a time . Iremember our teacher coming round our homes giving out lessons for us during this time.

It is now the most wonderfull house with a living area at the topend ( three floors,) and a very large lounge in the other part, the owners have done it in a most tastfull way still retaining its look and not spoiling it in any way.
