What was this for?

Here’s a question. Does anyone know what the brickwork between the Farmhouse and the Community Hall was intended for?

The middle picture was posted on our sister site Chandler’s Ford Neighbours by Sarah Ghafoor and got me thinking. 27336986_10215251824756087_129756936024032815_nThe picture dates back to 1986. Some of it was removed to allow the Deanery to access the car park but some still remains.fhnew

A bit of Millers Dale history

Kindly supplied by Mr Rawlings are the original sales brochures for the housing development that became North Millers Dale. I have scanned them in and they are available to look at here. Interestingly, hand written on, are the prices these houses were selling for at the time, around 1980. Click the brochures to view.
