Gate End in Winter, in the early 1900s

The shop was still probably owned and run by Gertrude Spencer, who had previously been married with the surname Otter.  The children are all well turned out, but there are large puddles - VERY large puddles in the hollow of West End and Ferry Lane!

A noticeboard is visible on the left, for currently unknown purpose, but by the 1950s a similar noticeboard on the wall of the shop (right) listed the players for the next game of Winteringham Football Club.

The “reverse” view compared to the above photo, with some interesting differences on and around the Bay Horse.  The “new” butcher’s shop is in the middle distance, together with the farm buildings that are now rooms for Winteringham Fields.
