Old Greenhouse Foundations. #ffs III


Whilst researching the historical topography of the allotment yesterday, (ascertaining the location of the Blackhill Brickworks to see if it gave any clues about the quality of the local clay) I came across this detail from a 1930s OS map. I haven't the technology to overlay it to a satellite photo like google maps, but I'd put money on that rectangular structure (the one away from the path, with a square structure adjoining) is the Old Greenhouse. That's the 1930s mind, and one of the few structures in the entire "Allotment Gardens" deemed worthy of inclusion by the OS. Like I said, #ffs.
