Marsworth, Buckinghamshire

in 1905

 

In 2014 a series of old photographs, possibly mostly amateur snapshots, appeared on ebay. I succeeded in winning some of the auctions and this page includes the pictures I acquired and also thumbs of the ones that got away for records purposes. The early divided backs of the post cards I have suggest a date of around 1905

Canal at Startops End, Marsworth

Amateur photo?, circa 1905

This rather poor quality photograph shows the Grand Union Canal south of Startops End, Marsworth. The modern car park is behind the tall trees in the centre, with the lock-keepers cottage (now Bluebells Cafe) to the right.  The White Lion Inn is behing the trees and the Anglers Retreat is possibly the last visible roof on the lect.

The thumb images on this page are from the adverts for the other pictures which were sold on ebay at the same time. Larger images are not available.

Two pictures on one card

Looking toward the village, including the Red Lion public house, from the canal towpath near the Ship Inn.

These two views are the reverse of the one on the above looking down the hill in the village, past the Red Lion Inn towards the Grand Union Canal.
