"Stowe House" is the house adjacent to "The George" about which I know very little. It has a certain amount of charm and the old paving of beach stones are still in position outside the front door. It does not appear to have altered since I was a small boy when the Misses Smith lived there, they afterwards went to live in Caledonia Place, Clifton. In 1914 it was occupied by Simmonds, who helped to form and start the first troop of Scouts in the village in that year; he was also sacristan of the Church. In more recent years it was a small boarding house kept by Mr. & Mrs. Harper until Mr. Harper died in 1953.
