The Old Well shown on a plate

The Old Well at Banstead depicted on a plate. In the background and to the right is the property that replaced Yewlands.
The original photo was probably taken in the 1950s.
This photo was added in response to the following email sent in by Carmela Davies:

I have been searching for a photograph showing the house that was built after 'Yewlands' was demolished. The house was also called 'Yewlands' and was lived in by my grand-parents from 1953 until 1967 - Robert and Constance Pleace. It appeared on a postcard featuring the Old Well and on cups and saucers bought in the village.

Yes. That is the image that I remember. Thank you so much. When I was a child, my sister and I used to wave 'good-bye' to my grand-father when he left for work, in London. He wore a black suit and a bowler hat. We were convinced that the picture on the plates and cups were of him.

My husband and I stopped off at Banstead recently, on the way to Brighton. It was the first time that I had been there since I was 13 years old. It was such a joy.

We walked up to the park and saw the cricket ground where my grand-father had played cricket and the tennis courts where my parents had played, whilst my sister and I had watched.

I was thrilled to see the library which used to display the water-colours painted by May Gardener. She was the house-keeper of Mr Brewer - who lived in the house next door to my grand-parents - in Woodmansterne Road. My sister and I often played in his garden and he would join us on day trips to Worthing, Brighton and Bexhill-on-Sea. A wonderful trip down 'memory lane'.
