Falling on from John"s photo here is 4 photos of Holme House, the top shows the front of the house in 1910 bottom left is the back with the fountain and gardens taken about the same time.Bottom right is aerial view taken in 1947 shows the the large garden and green houses behind the the house.The West Mill buildings can be seen above, note bottom left of this photo you can see the Chinese Bridge this was washed away in the 1948 food and later replaced by the now known white bridge. Holme was great place to play, i remember as you entered the house you had a large staircase just to the right just like you see in the movies. But by this time the early 60;s it was starting to fall apart inside.

Another view of the Maltings/West Mill area, along Mill Wynd.

The photo shows and Then & Now of the entrance to Holme House, the 'Then' photo taken after the 1948 flood. Holme House was a rather grand building in its time, with pillared entrance (shown in photo) and several outbuildings.

George Angus has slides from 1974 which he's annotated to say 'just before its demolition'.
