Thank you to every one who took the time to guess last week’s Mystery Photograph, taken in Mells.

Well done to those of you who guessed Mells correctly: Paul Hancock, Jeff Parsons, Les Box, Hannah Selway and Colin Button.

Thank you to Patrick Rich who said: “This week the photograph is of the village of Mells, viewed from the south-east, approaching down the long hill from Frome.

“It is probably an early 20th century picture, as the excellent village shop/café have not yet been built by the central crossroads and to the top right, would now appear the Fairview housing development.

“The grade one listed St Andrews Church appears in the background.”

Jonathan Griffin also guessed correctly and said: “Mells is famous for being ‘The Plum’ which ‘Little Jack Horner’ found in his ‘Christmas Pie’ in the popular nursey rhyme.

“Descendants of John (Little Jack) Horner still occupy Mells Manor house to this day and have always maintained the Mells estate was acquired by perfectly legitimate means, still, as a young lady who shot to fame in the sixties (almost) said, ‘They would wouldn’t they’!”.

Thank you to Jeff Parsons for suppying this week’s Mystery Photograph. Jeff hopes it will evoke a few memories amongst readers.
