Hints as it used to be

Phil Rayner, who lives in Australia, found the Hints-Village web site and kindly sent these photographs and notes. Thank you Phil.

"My wife has been searching and found a couple of old postcards of Hints. Copies attached.
One had a note endorsed- "Church where Edward Tomson Mobsby was christened." The Church is mentioned in the Doomsday Book -the area was all battlefield in the time of the War of the Roses"

The other:-
"House where Edward Tompson Mobsby was born on 12/10/1910, faces on to Watling (?) Road, Hints."

Hope these are of interest to you. (Looks bloody cold, doesn't it!!)" Phil Rayner Thursday 9/11/2000

Phil also sent this picture of Rose cottage in slightly warmer times.
