At this time the mill was still in operation and we believe it was still working well into the 1970s.

The old gates and railway station in Kingsland - sometime post-Beeching as the track no longer exists ! Clearly, Kingsland was quite a large station.

'This picture shows The Elms and was taken before 1907. It shows Samuel and Ellen Small with, the contributor believes, two of their daughters, Ellen Kezia and Selina. It was sent as a postcard at Christmas 1906 from Selina to her 'dear sister Nellie' (that is Ellen Kezia) with 'kind remembrances and every good wish for Xmas and the New Year'. You can read more about Samuel and Ellen Small, who are buried at the Methodist Chapel, on our Memories from the Past page.'

- Brick House, Grade II listed, is probably in its fourth century (the exact date of its construction is not known). Many of its present features (party walls, windows, staircases, fireplaces etc.) represent successive stages of modification and improvement carried out over the years. A second East Wing was built parallel to the street in the 18th century. This wing (shown above) lasted until the 1920's when it was pulled down by Hunchy Pritchard (he also covered the walls of the main house with pebble dash !). The Rosary, Saltash and Sunnybank were built on what had been Brick House land. The original house was a timber-framed structure and the timber framing is still in situ at the rear of the house. The oldest part of the building is at the street-end of the North Wing where the structural timbers are really massive. In the 1920's, part of the house was used as the Headquarters and Social Club for the Temperance Movement in the village!! In the 1930's, part of the ground floor was used as a post-office and mail sorting office (the postmaster, Mr. Williams living in the rest of the house). The Post Office vacated the building before 1939. Also at this time, the lower floor of the wing was used as an office by local authority surveyors - a separate street entrance being provided. During the second world war the surveyors office was in use as the village telephone exchange.
