On 28th Oct 2015, Glenys Elliot wrote "I have just been looking at the Gallery section of the history website and came across the 'unknown' section. I feel that photograph 004, showing riders and hounds, is taken at the top of School Lane, adjacent to the junction with Garth's End. The house gable with a high window and structural ties in the wall is that of the end house of a terrace of three located on Garth's End. A bungalow now stands behind the wall and hedge seen behind the riders on the picture. The high wall is also still standing at the corner of School Lane/Garth's End. All the structures can still be seen on Google Maps Street View. " - I have looked at other photos and aerial photos an I have to agree with Glenys. She later added that an old resident Mr Pearson in Kirkland Street can remember the hunt meeting in the vicinity of The Mile, and that wonderful hunt events took place in the Masonic Hall building. We have therefore established that this is indeed a Pocklington photograph. Thank you Glenys!
