The Cedars gardens with Church spire in background.

This photograph of the Cedars shows part of the gardens in the early 1930s and the front and east of the house. In the background is St Oswald’s Church, complete with spire.

On the left, in front of a tall hedge was a path and a small gateway onto the main road, almost directly opposite the main gate of St Oswald’s. This was used by the Rev P.Y. Savile for direct and easy access to the church when he lived at the Cedars
