These photos have been sent in by Anne Varley from Somerset. They are believed to show Allington Hall around 1900. They feature some of Anne’s relatives. Ann Jackson is now investigating. In the meantime if anyone can shed any light on them please let us know.
The pictures can be seen in higher resolution on The Allington Flickr account.
If you are fed up with potholes, litter and other issues that your local council should be attending to its a good idea to report it. However, it’s not always easy to know who is the responsible authority . Not everyone realises that the County Council looks after roads, the District Council manages litter and that sometimes they do things for each other. That’s where FixMyStreet can help.
If you follow the link above you will be taken to the FixMyStreet website where you can report issues like potholes, graffiti, and fly tipping. If you want to know what is being reported locally look down the right hand side of our home page. You will see the latest issues within a 10 km radius of Allington.
