Parsonage Lane/Spin Hill
Once again today we turn to one of those marvellous sketches drawn by Philip Wynell Mayow back in the 1830s.
This one he has just captioned as Market Lavington.
There isn’t a date or any further location given. We think it is Parsonage Lane, possibly leading up to Spin Hill but we cannot be certain. It is a wonderfully tree lined scene which fits what we know of the road today but the distant house (maybe two), on the right, can’t be identified.
This is at least 170 years old and provides us with that glimpse of Market Lavington, pre photographic records. But we would love to be able to place it precisely.
