Memory Lane: Another look round Parwich

FOLLOWING on from last week’s Memory Lane, in which we took a trip back in time to some of Parwich’s prettiest scenes, we have three more photographs to share with readers this week.

In last week’s paper, which is still on sale in the News Telegraph office, we published half of a small collection of photographs from the village that were lent to us by News Telegraph reader Vernon Webster, who lives in Chellaston. His wife, formerly Brenda Brown, used to live in Parwich.

We featured a scene looking up Main Street towards The Memorial Hall and another picture of Parwich Hall, an 18th Century mansion in the village. Our third picture showed Parwich School.

We begin our historic tour of Parwich following similar themes. Indeed, our first picture looks over the village to Lenscliffe and, interestingly, Parwich Hall can be seen poking through the trees amid the landscape.

If you’re having difficulty spotting it, look out for its flagpole, which rises up several feet above the symmetrical building.

Buildings have been added to the village since this photograph was taken, but does anyone have a similar view of the landscape in modern times? If so, please send it in, we’d love to publish it.

This week we also have another view of Parwich School as it looked in days past, and this time encompoassing a small shop in the foreground.

Our third picture, rounding off the small series, shows a snowy scene.
