Patricia Catchpole's stables on East Road.
Anne Watson says "The second building was put up in 58, we called it "Buckingham Palace" it was an old prefab that Charlie Buckingham got for her, the trees in the photo were an old apple orchard which she had grubbed out as a turnout paddock, it never grew much grass.
