Back in Time: 1874

An entry in one of our old log books reads:

‘Owing to the kindness of Captain Trappes & his brother Charles, about 1250 trees were planted in our Cemetery, some likewise round the kitchen and also a wooden railing put up round the kitchen & the back premises. A large wooden Cross was erected in the Cemetery, the walks widened and a house built of wood for tools etc.  Wooden railings were also put in front of the church.  Before the end of the year Gas Standards were put up in the Church at a cost of a little more than £44 and 4 additional windows were put into the Schools.’
