Post 1962 to 1990s:
The Flude family moved here in the 1960s, Henry Thomas, wife Barbara May and two sons, Robert and Michael.
The house was used to take in students for Trinity Hall in term time and as a bed and breakfast in the summer. There were six bedrooms, a bathroom with a huge cast iron bath, a basement with a kitchen area and lounge, and a huge old style pantry. There were servant calling bells and some rooms had maid call bell pulls. There were still big meat hooks in the basement pantry. There was also a beautiful carved oak stair rail.
