RE: Little Glemham


When passing through the village heading North I have always been intrigued by two things quite close together, one is the 'chequerboard' tiling of the house on the right and the building to its left with the 'tower'

I recently saw a house with such tiling in Haughley Village but as for the 'tower' was this originally the school which housed a bell or was it for hoisting such things as sacks of grain etc into a loft? I'm sure someone will tell us

Today the mystery has been solved thanks to Lesley Dolphin and her listeners on BBC Radio Suffolk and Lesley's Facebook page the building is the old school hence the 'bell tower'
