Ebenezer Methodist Church

Visit Jan 2010
From my notes of 1969:
The nearest Bay to ‘The Lodgings’ is Crocus Bay. To get there one walked or got a lift up Crocus Hill. A church (of which there were many) half way up the hill.
(Note the ‘International Road sign indicating Children crossing). The light coloured band across the road is a drainage ditch, which will destroy any vehicle if you hit them often enough. For this reason they were all marked with large white letters ‘DITCH’ on the road (You can see it faintly in the picture level with the traffic sign).
The house in the far distance with the Red roof is in both pictures even though taken 40 years apart

The road on the right to ‘Northside’ was not there in 1969. There was another ‘house’ sited where the road is, similar to the one on the corner where the telegraph pole is, which is currently unoccupied and boarded up ( known by the Met APU as the ‘lodgings’).
