  1. Mabbitt’s Mill, a woolen mill on Water Street. It now houses Isaac’s Restaurant upstairs as well as shops on the ground floor.


  2. Even Mrs Hornblower had to use ration cards! Even the one percenters affected by war. Needed a lot of gas for the Lincoln V12 my dad occasionally drove Mrs, Hornblower in.
