Harbour Point

Where Mary Lestocq lived.
Date unknown
Picture Added on 27 February 2007.


Mary's home was built over the site of where Ma Tonbridge's TEA ROOMS, and home used to be located. I have no idea when the new house was erected, but it was obviously designed to give a good view of the harbour and river in both directions up to Rye and out to sea.

I think it must have been built in the early seventies as I remember it from family days out in the mid-seventies. The windows used to have rounded corners like TV screens. Last time I looked there was still a small one on the river side of the house.

Yes Abigail - You are very observant. It had very pretty but complicated softwood windows that rotted rather quickly. Most of the windows have been replaced at least twice since then!
