Is Spicer's Hall still there? It was my uncle's surgery.
If you find the time, perhaps you might email me some pictures of Spicers Hall. Have you any of the inside as well?
I have heard from Alison, who works at the medical clinic built on the property. She informed me that my Uncle, Dr. Solich, passed away 8 years ago and my Aunt Jadwiga passed on last year. I haven't seen the house since 1968 when I was 8 years old, and my family and I are having a longing to view things from the past. We have a few photos of all us standing in front of Spicers Hall and a few taken in the living room.
I was able to download pictures of the Church from the Claverley website. As a child, I would walk my uncle's dalmation, Jaspar, and toy poodle, Joey, down to the shops for ice cream and we would always walk through the Churchyard and cemetary. It was interesting to see the photos of the Church. Unfortunately, there were no photos of Spicers Hall or the grounds on the website. Is the brick building still standing (the apothecary next to the house)?
I used to play in the long narrow room that was upstairs on the east side of the house.
We are from California, and the first night we arrived at Spicers Hall, I fell down the winding stair.
I very much miss the house. In fact, as a child, I always vowed I'd return and purchase it. Childish dreams are so silly, aren't they?
Well, not to bother you, but if you ever get a chance to send some photos, I'd really appreciate it.
