Where is this gate and what is the message in the scrollwork?
The derelict building with ‘Tea Rooms’ written on its side is at Runsell Green, opposite The Anchor pub.
It is called Wickham House and those who have lived in Danbury for more than forty years may remember it being run as a shop by two ladies. Dating from the 19th Century, this building was originally The Saracens Head and operated as a beer house until it was closed by magistrates around the end of the 1st world war. Apparently at the time Danbury had eight pubs to serve a village of about 800 inhabitants!
