The Grove from Callow Hill - Shropshire
The Grove from Callow Hill - Shropshire
The view down to The Grove, standing beside the A49 to the north of Craven Arms. This was once the site of J P Wood's chicken processing factory - my late grandmother Eveline Annie Coles, known as Ivy, was one of their employees - and the site of The Grove, a mansion owned by Mr and Mrs Greene, which in the words of someone 'arrived late and went early'. The Grove estate was a major employer in the area and until the estate was broken up, my late grandfather Richard Coles worked for them as a gardener. This photo was taken from Flounders Folly on Callow Hill, the 80-feet high tower also known by locals as The Monument. Time taken 12.23 pm BST (British Summer Time).
