The Dell c 1920
The Dell looking towards the direction of Coldblow and the 'style' crossing the stream. Notice how devoid of trees it all is. Photographer standing on the hill where the houses of the Dell would have been to the left and the small track leading to the sandy road to Heathwood would have been to the right.

'Dick Turpins' Cave c1890.

This was situated along the Birchwood Road on the left as you tavelled from Leyton Cross towards Swanley - on land opposite the junction with Birchwood Drive. The late Winnie Blackman explained that they would be taken by their teacher on a nature walk to this cave c1920. She stated that it was high enough to take a double decker bus. Didn't believe her until I found this photograph. See the man circled at the mouth to it. This has now been filled in.
