Scope and content
Sandfords Cottage early 20th century with a well in the lower left corner of the picture. The well was shared by the neighbouring cottage which is Brook Cottage. There was a little footpath between the two cottages where, in the 1950s Mr Bert Whitlock used to come once a day to take away 2 buckets of water.
Jo Lewington says the council tested the water for free, and that 'in those days' it was said to be the best water in Bampton.
The lady standing in the doorway is Mrs Fanny White and the date of the photograph is between 1900 and 1912.
The photograph was given to Jo Lewington by the little girl in her mother's arms, who was then (in the 1980s) 70 years old and had come to see the Morris dancing.
