About the building

Probably 1890s. Note low pitched roof and tall terracotta chimney stacks. (L Hurley)

Large stable at rear with cast iron winch on 1st floor which was probably used to hoist animal fodder in the past.

The date 1894 on the building refers to the establishment of the Oakley business but on another site.
