Thanks to Syd Bird for sending me this scanned image of the old Grove House property that a few of you have been discussing recently in relation to Grove Park. The photo was in a 1960’s local newspaper and Syd reckons the house may have been demolished in the 1930’s. Presumably the old Parish Hall (also now demolished – you can see an old photo of it in this post) was built after Grove House was knocked down?
Grove House faced towards Grove Road so we think the houses in the background of the photo must be the backs of the Lake Place houses. Here’s a 1909 Ordnance Survey map and you can click the image for a much larger version:
