    I have been told, though I can't find where I got it from, that the Gym & Chancel still survives at Stradishall, does anyone know if this is the case and if so, where is it?

    Thanks

    Having a quick look on Google Earth's 1945 images it woulds seem that this is the Gym and Chancel athough today it has been modified quite a bit.

    Thought that these photos may be of interest.One is from August 1941 and the other one from August 2007.More or less from the same spot.I wonder how long the water tower will remain intact.PA220758.jpgimg291.jpg
