Ugthorpe- West End

A delightful view of the west end of Ugthorpe, from a Tom Watson postcard, dated 1904. John Gallon tells the Archive: “Looking east, Pump Farm in the foreground, the “Pump” is over the wall behind the open farmyard gate, I was told that when I was a toddler I almost fell down the well looking for a lost kitten very soon after it was filled in (someone must have cared about me!!! Rose Cottage is in the middle distance (red brick). The “tin” hut in the centre was known as the Postman’s Hut where the postman would sort the post before delivering, it was wood lined inside and later used as a coal shed for the farm. As I write this I am sat, indoors, very close to where the dead tree is standing.”
