A couple of would-be crooks try and defraud their relatives out of the proceeds of a Tontine. Did you ever spot the TV aerials?

Note from Robin:
My assistant, Angela, grew up just down the road from Englefield Green and was my "Go To" girl on this one. She knew where the Bishopsgate House entrance was (she took riding lessons there). I'd have never found it on my own! She also pinpointed the elusive white house on the Green in the original pic on the website. This spot with the old fellow making a brew though was all my own work - found it looking for something else. So, many thanks to Angela as well.
