Nice little film, I wonder who the men mowing the lawn, and the one polishing the brass were, 1957- probably no longer with us, I'm sure their families are still about, pity they couldn't come on this site.
I seem to remember the long barn had a big window in the side in the Sixties and I think that there was either a horse drawn Fire Engine or a coach housed there, I'm not sure which or where it went. SB
Arguing with an idiot is like teaching a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time, and it only annoys the pig!
SB, take a look at the film clip I linked to in the second post, you'll be amazed. It was a coach when I first went there in about 1963 but clearly it had been a fire engine not long before then.
Yes, Denise, I spent a lot of time in there when I was a kid. Do you remember a model layout of yardley with a panel of push switches and a description of a local feature? When you pushed the switch a small lamp came on in the model to show where the feature was. VM
