Approaching the village from the north, there is a half mile rise to a crest. There's a mobile phone mast half-hidden in a small wood, called Gravelpit Plantation, at this point. A further half mile descent brings you to this pair of cottages.

The local stores and Post Office occupies the front room in the right hand half of this pair of cottages, which overlook the small village green. The size of the shop reflects local needs! Any more than two people means that a queue has to form outside!

The left half is a separate cottage, known as "Post Office Cottage". This was once the home of William Welham.

The telephone box is under threat. In the summer of 2004 a notice posted in it announced that it was planned to remove it due to lack of use.

Facing north, you have to wait for an evening in high summer to see the sun on this side of the building. This picture was taken on 28 June 2004.

Another view of these cottages can be seen in the Traffic Dangers photograph Album.
