They thought the village would always be remembered by that name!" Information from John Southey and Ms Bernard through Philip Hubbard.

Village of the Damned - Maybe the American School, Beevors House, nearby. However sharp eyed Dave Buckley suggests - I think it's a different angle of vd001 - Aldenham House, Haberdashers' Aske's School. Certainly has a similar portico. Confirmed by Geoff Dodd. (RL)
