69 How bleak and remote life must have seemed here during this

severe winter weather shortly after the out break of the Second World War.

Note how few houses there are compared to today.

70 Another bleak. WaTtime winter scene. A few pedestrians seem to have made their way across the snow in this, perhaps the most psychologically bleak winter Britain experienced in the 20th century

71 The sheep don't seem worried by the snow. Burmarsh village can be seen on the horizon. Notice

how much smaller Burmarsh is compared to today when modern housing developments have

considerably increased its size.

72 A winters scene at Great Lathe Farm looking east showing the original farmhouse which was demolished in 1966. The cot-

tages on the right of the photograph were Paines Cottages, which were demolished just after the Second World War. The field in

the front of the photograph is now used as the car parking area for Lathe Barn Tearooms, currently under the proprietorship

of Denis and Diana WimbIe.

73 A small barn at Great Lathe Farm, Burmarsh. There are some very rural looking haystacks and

farm implements ta the left. In front af the barn is Mr. Perey Cheeksfield.

74 A late 1920s picture of Eaton Farm when it was owned by the Checksfield

farnily. The present owners are Richard and Ianet Andrew.

75 The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway had a halt at Burmarsh Road. This was in use until October 1947 when the

station closed. Since 1 977, however, the platforms have agam been used by schoolchildren going to Southlands Comprehen-

sive School at New Romney. The train picks up more children at Dymchurch and St. Mary's Bay. This picture shows a 4-8- 2

locomotive passing Burmarsh Halt. The photograph was taken in 1 92 7 .

76 The Bell Ringers of Burmarsh in 1960. From left to right they are: Annie

Rainer, Minnie Watts, Frank Watts, Reverend Iohn Edinger, Mrs. Wrat-

ten, Brian Watts and Tom Fagg.
