  • Layston cottage is not the site of the Tannery Estate, that estate is situated at the other end of Pig’s Nose, the road that runs part of the length of the River Rib.

  • Thanks. If you’re able to post the images on the site, that would be extremely valuable.

  • The 4th photograph of Buntingford High Street in the LH corner shows a memorial plaque to WW1 soldiers from the village lost, I have a detailed photo of the plaque & unveiling ceremony.

  • Layston Cottage is still there. The Tannery estate was built further to the south, along the river towards Union Terrace.
