St Katherines is situated on the road from
Upper Froyle to Lower Froyle. It was originally built for the Sacristan of St Mary‘s Church (the person who looks after the vestments).
Here there are quite a few changes.
The other cottages in the old picture are
still there, although, like many, they have been converted from semi-detached
cottages (as built) to single units.
- St Katherines has been rendered and painted.
- An extension has been added at the rear.
- The road has been surfaced.
- Power lines and telephone wires are all
- The hopfield on the right of the old picture
has now gone and is used for crops.
- Surprisingly there are more trees
and hedges in the modern picture than the old one. This is despite
the loss of the Beeches, between Upper & Lower Froyle.
