Village Hall
Built 1930-31. When erected, two students from the London College of Art (now Professor Baker and Edward Payne) were commissioned, by the Carnegie Trust, to decorate the walls entirely with murals. They painted the village as it was then, the poachers looking down from Castle Hill, the Sunday School in the Methodist Church, the folk dancing, fruit picking, the Horse and Groom, the village flower show, making cider, and the caretaker lighting the stove. The BBC, in a broadcast in 1973 called it the Village on the Wall.     SU 170 176
