Miscellaneous Images from the Past

The provenance of the very old images of Rampton (below) are not known to me, but we are grateful to those photographers for capturing these marvellous old views of our village. The first view is of the High Street, looking west towards Willingham, with the Black Horse on the right. The second view is taken looking in the other direction towards the Village Green. The old Chequers Pub is on the right, and the old barn was renovated about 1990 and is on the corner of what is now Hall farm Close. The third picture shows the High Street and the Black Horse again on the right. The image of the Manor House shows the village pond: both still thankfully there. The photo of the Green is looking East towards Church End. Ed.

Should you have any old images you could share with Rampton, please let the Editor know. Thank you.
