Views from the hill
Then and Now
Back in about 1970 Peter Francis went up onto Lavington Hill and took this photo which he made into a large sized postcard.
It is quite a decent picture but it lacks detail. We can make out the church and of course we can no digitally enlarge it.
These days we can do rather better.
In fact even a half decent camera can get in close to the church.
The lime green coloured tree to the right of the church is the catalpa which was planted (by George Dobson) to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953. To the right of that, the T shaped building is The Old School.
There’s no doubt that modern technology has some advantages.
