Scope and content

With the dreadful spread of dutch elm disease in the late 1960s and on into the 1970s most trees died and had to be cut down before they blew down. The change in our landscape was very noticeable losing these magnificent trees. These two picture show the felling of the elm trees next to the old cricket ground which was behind Glebelands, over the wall from the cemetery. Roy Barratt lived in Glebelands so was on hand to capture the sad moment.
