This is a look back in the history of Kencot, about some of the houses in the village.
Dosset Old School
The Village School (now Dossett Old School House)
The Village school closed when May’s father was a child. The village children then attended the school in Broadwell. (Stella’s grandfather went to Alvescot School).
The Old Stable
Until the early 1970s, The Old Stable was originally a birthing stable for Broadwell Manor Farm. It was sold by the Goodenoughs to their friend Brenda Colvin, (born: 8 June 1897: Died: 27 January 1981 (aged 83)) the landscape architect who was based in Filkins (Colvin & Moggeridge).
She had the barn converted into a home, with living quarters upstairs, and sleeping quarters downstairs. It was her partner Hal Moggeridge with his family who first lived in the house.
