Aunt Nell's Cottage and Local Schools Talks by society members Mae Lewis and John Older based on DPHS archive material. Nell's cottage is the now renovated cottage next to the White House in the village centre. Nearly three years ago John gave us a great talk on education in Danehill. His new talk is: 'The School in the Woods-Twyford School, 1840-1923'. Following on from Jill Rolfe's article in the Parish Magazine, the talk will give more details about life in the school in its 83 years of existence.
On 30 July the society visited the house above. Anthony Smith took us on a tour of the garden, telling us about the medicinal and other herbs that grow there. An interesting and very unusual and fascinating visit. Our thanks to Anthony for giving us his time.
