The Hennes Paintings

The Hennes, Hubert and Hilary, were both painters and lived in Gidley Way. Their house was demolished in 2019 but one of the local residents, Cath Riley, saved a number of paintings which would otherwise have been throw away. Images of these paintings can be seen on the Horspath Archaeological Group's website at: Hennes Paintings
