A 1940s document showing village footpaths and bridges has turned up in a Belfast attic and has been sent via the website for the History Group Archive.

The list includes a quiet green oasis with a single gravelled footpath running up to the High Road: the area we now know as Greenmere.  Brightwell and Sotwell were two separate villages then, too.

The document was found among the belongings of Frank Green, a climatologist who lived at the house then known as Winterbourne in Church Lane in the late 1970s and 1980s. His daughter, Frances, found our webmaster's address on the internet and sent the package to us.
