69. From the top of South Street moving away from Hythe was Langdown Hill, The road is now, in name, a continuation of South Street.

70. This is Langdown Hill looking towards Hythe in 1900.

71. Butts Bridge HilI, today Butts Ash Hill, is more steep than the picture portrays. At the bottom of the hill a small stream crosses the road hence the 'Bridge', but why 'Butts' is unknown. This view is looking towards Hythe with Butts Bridge Farm on the right,

72. Butts Bridge Farm and the cows out for their aftemoon constitutional.

73. Mr. R. Ford of Butts Bridge Farm poses with his delightful 'Express' delivery cart.

74. Near Netley View Hythe with the 'Fawley Flyer' at full tilt heading for Hythe. The Flyer was in regular use until 1923, being owned by Mr. South of Fawley. It has been restored and preserved for all to see today.

75. The same bend as in No. 74, but some years later. This was a treacherous pi├Ęce of road in bad weather and many drivers ended up going through the fence on the right. The dip was bypassed about 1960 to the great relief of all who travelled that way.

76. A superb aerial view of a part of Hythe showing the Pier and the landing just north of the Pier. The big house with its own promenade was Knightons. St. John's Street passes between Knightons and the Church yard, running into The Marsh. Almost parallel to The Marsh and on its seaward side is the High Street, which ends at the Pier Entrance becoming Prospect Place. Opposite the Pier and at right angles to the High Street is Pylewell Road. There are no vehicles on view to assist with the dating of the photograph, but Hythe was much like this up to 1960.
