Nightingales

A former Stanhoe resident is looking for a missing painting.

1950s painting of a new brick-and-tile house next door to single-story agricultural building

Have you seen the original of this fine painting? Roger Horn, who used to live in Stanhoe, would like to know what’s become of it.

The house named Nightingales, which still stands in Docking Road, was built in 1953 for Roger’s parents George and Ruby Horn. Next door, on a site now occupied by the Parson’s Lane development, stands The Granary, from where Mr Horn ran his agricultural feedstuffs business.

Roger says the painting was commissioned by his father and used to hang in the office. In later years his mother must have disposed of it. Someone clearly took a photo, because it’s in the Stanhoe Archive collection, but the painting itself is off our radar. If anyone has seen it, please contact or .
