Willoughbys for sale
Back in 1930 the house we know as Willoughbys on White Street in Easterton was up for auction complete with a bit of a legend. Seemingly it was called The Old House then.
Someone has pencilled on to the front of the little brochure that the vendor was Miss Murphy. We know nothing about her. The pages describing the house make lovely reading.
So there’s the legend. It says Oliver Cromwell is said to have stayed and slept in one of the rooms.
This is a lovely document about a lovely house which still stands, of course.
