We had the village bobby stay with us and he and his wife were kind enough to pass on to us some images taken between 1980-1985.
Here is Nick's email to us....
Many thanks for a lovely nights sleep, it certainly was stepping back in time for us.
The attached photos are from 1980-1985 when I was the village bobby.
It was great to see behind the scenes and the garden as well. You have completed a wonderful transformtion of the old place. The five years at Leeds were the best years of my police service. We have nothing but fond memories of the house and the village, how times have changed!.
