    Mrs Ebblewhite's Shepperton Green Nursery School

    I have a request from a Ms Davies who is researching the history of her house, the message is below but if you can help please get in touch here.

    I am trying to research the history of my house - Manor Cottage.
    It was used as a nursery school in the 1960s.  Does anyone know about its history?  Any information would be gratefully received.

    I would love any copies of old photos if possible.

    This picture was kindly loaned to me by the staff at the Halifax Building Society in Shepperton High Street who are the current occupiers of the building.

    Can anyone help date the picture?

    Shepperton is the most southerly parish in the county, lying on the north bank of the Thames opposite Walton and Weybridge on the Surrey bank.

    This twelve page article taken from 'a History of the County of Middlesex' outlines how Shepperton has changed.
