This photograph is believed to have been taken from a German aircraft at the beginning of the war.
It shows some buildings that no longer exist, which includes the old cottages behind the Telegraph pub, originally called Gautherns Cottages, or Gautherns Yard, after the late 18th century owner Henry Gauthern. This name was later corrupted to The Gothens, also known as ‘gas house cottages’. These were pulled down in the early 1950s. The photograph also shows the Telegraph pub and the old stable adjacent, as well as The Maltings on the borders of Nettlestead.
