The good looking Jack Russell there is called Seamus, owned by the Matron at Crowtrees -Jessie Mitchell. My Gran.x
Crowtrees House on the A65 Rawdon, quite near the bottom of Over Lane, used to be an Old Inn, then a private house and then a nursing home. Eventually it was sold, probabably by the Aireborough council and then it became a home for retired ladies , there are now some retirement bungalows in part of the grounds.

For a number or years in the late 1960's and through to 1977 when the Jubilee Hall was opened in Layton Avenue (Back Lane). The girl guides / brownies used to meet in a building in the grounds of Crowtrees. I can remember my sister Louise coming home one evening and announcing that the brownies would be finishing, because the then leader was stepping down. Louise persuaded our mother Kathleen Willcock to get back in to girl guide movement and thus rekindled along association with the Girl Guides in Rawdon.
