Heritage Tour









Above is a beautifully designed display prepared by a Round Hill householder as part of last year's Heritage Open Door Days - a self guided tour of parts of Round Hill to discover an eclectic collection of local history. It presents a timeline of previous occupants looking at four sets of them in some detail. Among the four is Colonel Heber Drury (see his Wikipedia entry). The longest occupants (1921-47) were Ernest and Annie Renton.
