The Gift House, Buckland Monachorum

Looking down the main street in Buckland Monachorum, from the Gift House at the top to the church.
The Gift House was an almshouse for over 250 years and was where my 4 x great aunt Eliza Bulley (nee Justham) was living at the time of the 1911 census.
The cottage adjoining it (the unpainted one) is where a tragic murder and suicide occurred in 1913.

By co-incidence this view is taken from almost the same spot as a photograph in Alice J. Bere's book "Buckland Monachorum". When this is out of copyright (2015) I'll add the picture here for comparison. Apart from the absence of cars in the earlier photo little has changed; the lamp post has crossed the road, and some electrical cables and pipes appeared in my 2013 photo; some houses have been painted and some had paint stripped of, and in the distance there are trees where it looks like just a hedge topped the hill in the distance.
