And Finally 

 

 

This lady appears in the Photograph of Church Corner 1900, near the top of the page. She appears to be reading a book sitting on a stool outside the gate of the Vicar's Garden (now the new cemetery). Who is she? Why is she sitting there? Maybe she is not real ! There must be a story but we are unlikely to ever know.
