“Hello, is Mr Woodley at home?”

Each time I visited Worlds End, I badly wanted to knock on Mr Woodley’s door; I don’t know what stopped me on previous occasions but because I was armed with the 1896 photo and a copy of my extracts from ‘Notes by the Way’ I had a little more confidence.

Today I knocked on the door; the door opened but it wasn’t Mr Woodley.  I showed the current owner the 1896 photo and after a fair amount of talking about Mr Woodley, the gates to the magic kingdom opened!

I was able to take some photos and some of them I will share with you today.  I kind of wish it was winter because the leaves on the trees do obscure a lot of detail.  Oh yeah, do you remember ‘Dr Who’? – every couple of series the Doctor would regenerate, well perhaps today so did Mr Woodley…

  1. It was worth plucking up the courage to knock. Was the present occupant at all aware of Mr. Woodley?

      Very much so, although I think she hadn’t seen my 1896 photo or the commentary I made on ‘Notes by the Way’. The owner, Liz, showed me the deeds of Garden Cottage, and it would appear that Mr Woodley rented garden cottage.

  2. Brilliant! It’s incredible just how many hives Mr Woodley squeezed into that space. Can I ask what software you used to do the photo overlaying?

      I use Microsoft Expression Design. And with the overlaid photograph, I changed to opaqueness to get the desired effect.
