It must be the ghost, putting viewers off.

Googled it and got a shock - a very similar house.

I was looking for another photo of the vicarage at Wantage found by Yorkslass and this came up, It is called St Mary's House, Wantage, so could be the vicarage or another house. It is a bit clearer view.

After looking on the Internet for this house.

I am amazed how many houses have "disappeared "into
the sea due to soil erosion .
Must be awful to know that your home will be gone forever .

Trishanne,

This is where I first found the old photo of the parsonage at Wantage.

I don't really think it's Carole's house, but the similarities struck me.

Roopat, speaking  for myself, if you are unhappy with any comment I have made on this thread you are very welcome to do a 'report to moderator'  :)


JenB  I felt uncomfortable with the tone of some comments and felt I wanted to offer my opinion openly.

I think this house may have been a casualty of the war or was pulled down to make way for a motorway or a retail park  ::)
I have been amazed at the lengths people have gone to in the search for a location. Also the lighthearted banter that has added humour and a great sense of fun to the topic. It makes for a pleasant distraction from searching for relatives that often don't want to be found.
Thank you all  ;)

What a shame if that has happened, it must have been a house of some significance to be on a postcard I'd have thought. Very unhelpful that the writer didn't sign it, or at least post it to give us a clue.
