OLD POSTCARD OF THE MONTH- January 2015
Taken from the track that used to lead to the iron ore workings on Knowle Top, this photograph shows the area known as "Old Place", on which the West Somerset Rural Housing Association built the three Staddons cottages. This was originally the location of a cottage which was demolished circa 1910 once Glebe Cottage and The School House had been completed. I can remember Old Place as a rather overgrown orchard containing chicken sheds, a small workshop with a Lister "Junior" stationary engine which drove a corn mill, a saw bench and an Arkansas sharpening stone (which is now in the garden of Wychanger Cottage). It was a general utility space for Glebe Farm, the tenants of which were the Staddon family, latterly Edward Staddon, assisted by his brother Albert ("Jim").
