Geoffrey and Gladys Miller built this house in in 1934 and named it Alcantra, meaning song in Spanish after a trip to Spain in a boat of that name. Geoffrey Miller founded Millers Music Shop. In 1982 he recalled the field that for 20 years had come up to their fence. The field belonged to a farmer called Mr Cornwall; he grazed cows and horses there.
