Late 19th century photograph of what is now known as Fiddler’s Rest. It was built as The Lodge to the Vicarage, now known as Bishop’s House. It was used as a gatekeeper’s cottage in the 1840s by Lord Charles Hervey. At the top of the front gable the initials CAH can just be made out. These are the initials of Charles Amelius Hervey. Could the well-dressed children at the gate be his? For more information on this and the Vicarage see ‘House Histories’ edited by John French and available from the Society.
