The photograph (left) shows the Tytherington Church
Band posing in front of the first village hall which was situated in
Duck Street. It was next to the bungalow called Hill View and its
position is marked to the right of the bungalow by two stone gate
pillars in the wall. It is well remembered by villagers as being
small and cramped, lacking many facilities including toilets.
Female villagers often complained about the stinging nettles outside at
the back of the hall!!
Eventually the 'Red House' as it was called was taken
down, re-erected in Oldbury near Berkeley and used by a farmer for
storage. It was replaced by the Tytherington Church Hall, pictured below, on
the site of what is now the village shop. This army hut was
previously sited at the Polish camp at Babdown.
