In September 1940, at the start of the Blitz, a German 500kg landmine was dropped by parachute in the field alongside the lower end of Rushmore Hill, causing extensive damage to several houses. Margaret, daughter of Cyril and Amy Fowler who lived in the house from 1930 to 1955, kindly lent this and other fascinating photos.
