Sir - I am more than sorry to hear of the proposed demolition of the fine old house on the corner of One End Street, Appledore. As a member of a family which has lived in this district for many generations and has always cared deeply for the character of this particular town, I feel that I must add my protest. My late uncle, Admiral Franklin, had a great affection for Appledore, as have we all. The original and fascinating street formation is one of Appeldore's proud possessions and the loss of this particular house would destroy a charming corner.
