A Photo of Overchurch Hill house did exist and was hung on the wall in the bar of the Overchurch Pub. This was many years ago I doubt if its there now, I would also like to see a picture as it was, my only recollection is the ruins of what we called the home. Also the tennis court with the yew tree wind breaks and cobbled court yard area where i guess the stables were. Also the remains of the walled garden with various fruit trees and wallnut tree,this was adjacent to the grave yard. Does anyone else remember any of these.
I remember all those, but think it was in use as a home possibly into the early 60s (I would have been 5 in 1960) because I can recall the Children and the donkey and the Matron....i also remember it being pulled down and actually being allowed in there to explore.
Behind the tennis courts there was a cemetry, but i never knew there was a church on the site. my father was a scout leader and used to tell us what the place was like when Paul lived there and how there was a tree specimin from all over the world planted around the grounds. We lived in inman Road then and backed onto the field in front of the home. I remember the oak tree (next to the stone on the map) being cut up for a bonfire one year.
Near the swimming pool (which used to get used by kids off the estate) there used to be a log cabin which I think was linked to the jambouree, i did see inside once, but don't remember too much as I was just a kid back then
