This picture shows the front of the cottages in the 1950s. The young boys from the 1930s photo have now grown up.
The dramatic landscape in the background of this photograph is now completely covered with woodland, having been used as a tip in the 1960s.
Ownership of the cottages had passed to Butlers when they purchased the Stone & Tinson site in the 1920s. In the late 1950s the cottages were declared to be unfit for habitation and the tennants had to move out. They were probably demolished soon after- wards.
