Reader Comments for The Star

Richard Carpenter Commented on Wed, Apr 21, 2021 at 8:54am
I lived at the farm cottages that were replaced by 315 The Star in the late 1940s. The cottages were demolished and replaced by the existing house, and the farmyard that adjoined them is now also gone. However, part of the wall alongside The Star still exists and was originally the full height wall of a barn shows the letters WT scrawled on a stone in tar. Hidden by undergrowth is also the name Lucy.

These were daubed on the wall around 1920 by my aunt Lucy Carpenter ( nee Turnbull) 100 years ago!
The site was originally beloved to house an Inn (hence the Star) and was a staging post on the main route from Bath to London when this road was the main thoroughfare.
