I don't know where this is but the image below, from the Fourtoes website, is the other side of it. House with greenhouse And I reckon that this is a garage block to it. Note the weird support to the veranda, the roof and the barge board styling. Garage to above Edited by member, 7th Jan 2021 5:27 pm

This is the right hand end of Hylands and you look from the street. View that matches the photo. As others have noted this is also Hylands. The rear of Hylands. Edited by member, 7th Jan 2021 7:04 pm

That Dalecote House one is strange as it’s listed as Charterhouse Lodge on modern Google Maps and there appears to be an upper bay window added to that side that does not even match the modern website logo. My wife has been in there before - it’s the Masonic Lodge if I'm not mistaken. She used to teach at Davenport Lodge School in Davenport Road and they used to have a Christmas party in there. Helen, do you want me to add location comments on the Flickr album? I did the Darlaston House one already and obviously credited you (and mentioned the forum, Rob!)

As some have already been flipped, it would be worth considering that the others might be the wrong way round too - Dalecote House is the wrong way round. I might place the others if the orientation is right. It might affect the actual number of the Warwick Road one too as features might be flipped. I'll see to it.

This one has been identified as Birch Tree Cottage in Keresley. Birch Tree Cottage from the front Old Maps location And looking at the map, I'm right, this one is its garage. Garage of Birch Tree Cottage Sorry Neil, I missed your question about posting on Flickr for me. Yes please.

Some of the photos seem to be in batches - maybe based on a long walk. There are a number based on the river out near the Waste Disposal Plant/Sewage Works. This is south of the WDP/SW, looking west. The London Road was beyond the houses and the land beyond was to become the cemetery. River Sherbourne with London Road beyond This is the WDP looking north west. Swift's Corner Sewage Works The track crosses the river and this might be near the bridge looking north east, with the WDP/SW off to the left. As someone notes, it is the railway line in the distance. It could also be the other side of the railway line looking south west. Might be the eastern branch of the river going round the Sewage Works. Map of area It's a wild guess but I wonder if this is the dried up bed of the Sherbourne when it ran to the west of the plant. The path followed its line into the trees. You can see stone blocks in the bank on the right. Might this be part of where Swift's Corner mill was? Swift's Corner?

Wisteria Cottage had a horse-chestnut tree just inside its front garden. We threw sticks to dislodge the conkers (probably way too early for them to fall) until the resident of the cottage fondly (probably not fondly) known as 'Old Grumpy' came out and threatened us... or just shouted. We also made our way into the cottage next door. Derelict in the late 50's.
