    ManSetter - My mum comes from that way, and I once looked at buying an old vicarage out there.

    I remember the old vicarage.The one somewhere behindr Church Walk.I played in the surrounding fields..
    There was a mulberry tree in the garden, the only one I have ever seen.
    Someone I met a couple of years ago lives in one of the 'new builds' on the site..She looked around,but said there was no sign of a mulberry tree.
    How tragic. It must have been more than a couple of hundred years old.
    Developers dont care and more importantly neither do the County planners.From the experience (of my son who is an archaeologist) most of them don't even bother to go and see sites before ticking them off as nothing of value to be preserved. Neither do they like archaeologists or anyone who points things out, because it costs more money and time to investigate.They choose to be blind to the fact that they are obliged to do so..
