Old Photos of Witham

137-143 Newland Street

Taken: 3 July 1914, Ref: M703

From the survey of 1914 by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments.

Left to right, small part of 129 Newland Street, 137 Newland Street (shop, with sign painted on end wall saying ‘W Ardley, baker, horses and traps for hire, trains met by appointment, motor for hire’), 139 Newland Street (shop), 141 Newland Street (brick, behind telegraph pole), 143-145 Newland Street. Numbers 137-139 were described by the RCHM in 1914 as ‘two small shops with residences at the back’.

The original RCHM Record Card for these buildings from 1914, contains rather more about their structure and history. They were Witham Monument 34. I think the cards may now be held by Historic England in Swindon.
