The doctor calls

Hilary Burton recalls her father-in-law Dr John Burton, a GP in a practice in the building now occupied by Zizzi's restaurant at the end of the High Street, making perilous night visits to Lich Street in the late 1940s.

The condition of the stairs made visits in the dark hazardous, and some of the houses had no electric lighting. Here are the remains of one of the staircases leading down into the cellar of the buildings.
