Chipping Hill looking west. Alice Mary Green, publisher, was in charge of the shop at 13 Newland Street 1911-1917. Three soldiers on the left; Ian Hook says ‘the men are certainly soldiers, looking very much like Lowland Scots, which would be right for Witham in the light of the Divisions that were in Essex’. They were in Witham early 1916 to January 1917. On right hand side of road, left to right, 34 Chipping Hill, 32 Chipping Hill (these two demolished 1932), 30 Chipping Hill (behind fence), 28 Chipping Hill, 26 Chipping Hill (these three later combined as 28 Chipping Hill), tower of parish church, 22 Chipping Hill.
