Batchelors Farm, Barns Green.

This is a scan of my original postcard showing an interior view of the farm house at Batchelor’s Farm near Horsham in Sussex. This shows their Study in the early 1900’s complete with all furnishings and provides a wonderful insight of the Victorian Era.

Stream Cottages, a look back in time

I would like to share with you my original detailed real photographic postcard, scanned at 1200dpi, which shows children paddling in the water at the end of Ditton Stream which is a road in the village of Ditton in Kent. This card shows Hall House which is now a pair of houses known as Stream Cottages and is Grade II* listed. The timber framed building was constructed around 1420-1450 and a solar wing was added around 1480-1500. It has a tiled roof with return gables at both ends, 16th century molded wooden barge boards and the remains of timber-framing inside. Also inside can be found a built in stack with carved Tudor arched wooden bressumers to fireplaces, molded beams and a crown-post over what was once the hall. The house now has 19th century cladding to the 1st floor. (information about Hall House from the Kent History Forum Website).                         Stream Cottages DittonCompare with the view from Google Maps below.                                                                         The Stream Ditton Kent

It is good to know that this building is still standing and listed and preserved.
