I have that picture of Savernake Cottage Hospital but had not got the date - thank you! Don't forget that the Community History Project for Savernake Hospital is open for a week in St Peter's Church Marlborough (the one with the cafe) from Saturday Jan 24th to Saturday Jan 31st (closed only on Sunday) from 10am-4pm. Bring your pictures, documents, memories or just yourself. Everyone welcome and it is free. Don't miss it! We've worked on the framework of the history but rely on the local community to fill all the gaps and bring it alive with their own stories.

Love the picture of the Nine Elms. My grand parents owned this Pub for many years & loved it dearly. I live in Cornwall now but what a treat to see this old photo. Thank you

Love the photo of The Crescent, Chiseldon. My nan was Mrs Wilson (Milly) and lived at number 12 (I think!) and if I remember correctly had Gwen Smart on one side, and Bert Cox on the other. There was Mrs Huntley opposite... Wish I had some photos of the house, what memories!

Thank you Eric Bizley for the photo of Bradenstoke Abbey. Just tracked back some distant members of family tree, Freegard family who were farmers there in the 19th century.
