I don't know the exact date of this photo.  Lutton House, to the right of the church, is still there.  The houses in the foreground of the photo have been demolished.  In the 1950s Mrs Taylor lived in the house in the left foreground.  Just to the right of it you can see the remains of the old smithy.  In the far right foreground is the Black Horse pub where the Butlers lived.  Moving left from there is where Mr and Mrs Reeder lived, including the old bakery.  The footpath which came directly from the church through to Barholme Avenue can be seen almost in the centre foreground of the photo.

Thanks Maureen1 for your messages. As we are fairly new to the area its great to see some of its pictorial history. Thank you again.

I don't know who Lutton House was built for.  The Folley family lived in it for many years.  There was another older and grander house in Lutton.  It was called Marrowbone Hall (possibly a mangled version of MaryleBone, as it was rumoured to have been built by people fleeing from the plague in London in the 17th century).  By the 1950s it had been renamed Kingston Hall and the Holdsworth family lived there.  It was demolished in the 1960s or 70s.  It was situated on  the road to Gedney.  There was a large grassfield between it and the cemetery.

I am assuming that Lutton House was/is a prominent building in Lutton? Have you any idea when and who it was built for?

Speaking to a lady recently she explained that there was a Ballroom on the first floor of the house as she went there as a guest many years ago.

To Shelair....  There were TWO pubs in the 1950s: the Jolly Crispin which is still there (and the edge of it can be seen at the extreme left of the photo) and the Black Horse which was demolished but is there in the right foreground of the photo. 

Shelair commented Oct 13, 2013:

What a great photograph, Maureen. 

How things have changed. The Pub is now called the Jolly Crispin and currently run by Ken & his wife who hail from Yorkshire via South Africa.

The land opposite the Church has a new estate of houses upon it now. There are now 2 wooden benches t o the right of the War Memorial; the most recent commerating Elizabeth the Second Diamond Jubilee 1952 -2012.

Many things have changed over the past 10 years or so in Lutton, but is it for the better ? time will tell.
