a Ross coat of arms had been bought in Ross-on-Wye in 1912
and given to her Auntie Alice as an engagement present.
that the china would be better used by the people of Ross,
Elizabeth asked Ross Town Council if they would like it
as a gift. Ross Town Council gratefully accepted and on
Wednesday, 18th April, Elizabeth travelled to Ross to present
the gift to Mayor, Phil Cutter and Town Clerk, Denise Mason.
Elizabeth and the Town Council would like to find out in
which Ross shop the china might have been originally purchased

YOUR HOUSE: FULL SIZE AERIAL PHOTOS
ESPECIALLY FOR JEAN
Wyenot News reader, Jean stopped me in the street
on Saturday. 'Sorry Alan, I still can't see my house'.
Jean - anything for you. This is the closest I can do to
where I think you live, so I hope your house is on this
one. This photo covers as far west as I can go at the moment,
heading towards Ross from Goodrich with houses in the picture.
The shot before it, which I have not published was a close-up
of Rehau at Hom Green.
picture is not too bad and covers from Lincoln Hill on the
west side to River View etc. on the east side of town so
others might see their house from a different direction
also - especially those living off Roman Way.
think I'll just about let this rap up the aerial photos
for now as I have covered most local areas. The photo downloads
have proved to be extremely popular - with several thousand
downloads over just the past two weeks. If I have still
not covered the area in which you live - let me know and
I'll try to cover it in the future.
One: Lincoln Hill

to your area of interest.
helicopter aerial to television aerial
I see a ladder or scaffolding, I can't resist the photo
opportunity. Not the most exciting photos, I'm afraid but
here is the view from some scaffolding behind the Maltings
car park . . .
