Thank you very much to Elizabeth Smith for providing a huge range of old Spaldwick photos to add to the Spaldwick archive. Here is a photo of the Axe and Compasses Inn taken by Rev Holland before 1899. You’ll see the name plate above the door bears the name of the landlady – Mrs Alice Green. You can see the sign of The Bell Inn in the distance.
Please do get in touch if you have old photos of Spaldwick and you would like to share them with others. Click on the photo for a higher resolution version.
