Cottages near Turner’s Farm, Watergate
These stood on the west side of the road, below where the bungalows are now.The three storey building was used as cottages in the 1940s and perhaps later as farm buildings.
Mr. Turner lived at the farm at the time of the Watergate Floods. After the floods the farm became empty and was later demolished. The pear tree on the left remained growing.
Houses near the Mexboro’ Arms
Community houses around the Mexborough Arms. This small group of properties is on Watergate, just before the pub. On the left is the front garden and part of a bungalow, one of a pair of semi-detached bungalows, built on this higher ground by the Turner family after their farm was demolished in the 1960’s.
Beyond, also on the left, is an old – now modernised – cottage, called Rose Cottage. Across the road on the left side of the photo, is the plaster-rendered gable of the Mexborough Arms standing at the east corner of the crossroads. In the near foreground is a detached house built mid 1960s.
