Dear people of Berwick St James!
What a  fantastic website!  Congratulations!
Briefly (your time is  precious), I'm a foreigner - I live in Suffolk!
But in the 1920s  my grandmother's half-sister came to live in Berwick St James with her husband  and two daughters.  A son was born later.  They lived in  'Westfields'.  I have a photo of it - an old, thatched, detached cottage.   Does it still exist, I wonder?
My wife and I are coming  down to visit a friend who lives in Lydford-on-Fosse next month and I'd very  much like to call by and take some photos of your area as I'm beginning to  follow up some family history.
If I may ask you for a brief  response to this e-mail (anybody know of said property?) I would appreciate it  very much.

Since receiving the above E mail High has sent another E mail stating that he suspects that the Westfield house may infact be in Lake.
