Old photos of Little Shelford Memorial Hall


A former Village Hall, Church Street, Little Shelford

"In 1918 a small wooden recreation room (seen above) was brought from the Whittlesford military hospital and placed upon the site of these old cottages and has been named Freda Room. A larger permanent room will soon be added and named Victory Hall. William Gall used to make asphalte and disinfecting fluids in his yard. He built a very tall brick chimney there but the smoke and the odours from the asphalte manufacture were so distressing to the whole parish that it was bought by J.F.Eaden esquire."
