Alverne House

Alverne House built by the Pascoe family not sure when this picture was taken? notice the railings and the big hedge, both gone today, but if you go past you can still see where the rails went as there are round holes left on top of the wall that is still there. picture supplied by John gendall

      I see that it was when Griddle and Smith had opened, The cottage and shop next the Western still exists in this picture; The 1936 OS map still shows the cottage there, but Griddle and Smith became Alfred Smiths in 1912. I would estimate 1910 by the advanced hedge. The wall has now been set back of course.

      Hi The Alverne House was built in 1754 by the Pascoe family....not sure if this helps ::6:

      The Pascoe family are one of my interests; I see a picture of 1890 but the tree hedge is less of a screen then, so, as I say, I think this is 1910; The house was owned by the photography family the Prestons at this late 19th C early 20th C.
