What is that in photo 1 behind Tom.  At first glance I thought it was a thick tree trunk, but it looks more like a notice board or even an old grave stone.  I can't make out anything written/engraved on it though.
I agree it's a sign. I enhanced it a little but still can't make out the script. Attaching it here.
Looks like maybe a date....1656?   1856?

Could the 2nd photo be a hotel, (maybe Park Hotel ::) ::)) There seem to be a lot of rooms for a private house.

 Park hotel would fit in the PA and H in photo.  Any idea which city?

I did mention Park Hotel rather tongue in cheek. I have just noticed there is a sign on a post on the left hand side of photo, but it is at the wrong angle to read it.

The "PA and H" seem to be just hanging in mid air!

Another thought about the PA and H, given the leaning notice board on the left  - it could even b be 'Parish Hall'

I've been looking on Google around Warrington as the Beesley family lived there at some point, but that wall is stone and everything I see around there seems to be brick. "Parish Hall" is a good guess. I also see there's a "Paddington" and "Padgate" in the Warrington area. I wish I could enhance that sign better.
