  • I was told by the late Randal Bingley, that one of the things found was a witches’ bottle. This protected the house (and its occupants) from witchcraft. They were believed to be effective so long as the bottle was hidden and unbroken.

  • Roger died a few years back. The bungalow where he and his mother lived, together with its garden and Carpenter’s lorry yard was re-developed for housing and is now St Stephen’s Crescent.
