Following a recent enquiry we have been exploring the Horse-Causy (Boulder Causeway) which used to run along the western side of Main Street. The roads were impassable in bad weather and the boulder causeway was the solution – keeping everything going. Can you imagine a time when one of the annual parish jobs was to plough and harrow Main Street?! The boulder causeway was replaced with modern pavements in 1912 as a Coronation project but we have a few photos of it before it disappeared.
How much do you know about the development of our village streets & have any of these old cobbles survived in your garden?!
