A gift from the Gibbs family
A gift from the Gibbs family
The row of old cottages (Compton Mead) date from the late seventeenth century; they were extensively rebuilt in the early twentieth, courtesy of the local Gibbs family. They were wealthy merchants and settled in the area; their main estate was Tyntesfield House, but they also contributed to a lot if the village life. One of William Gibbs' sons, Henry Martin Gibbs, arrived in 1882 and set about major improvements to the village. His initials remain on this plaque on the end of the old Post Office.
