Pitch and Toss. Silas Bundy, Arthur Вundу, Joseph Tongs, Frederick Bloomfield and William and Frederick Sillence were charged with playing pitch-and-toss, on Sunday last. the 5th inst. at Michelmersh , near  Romsey. The whole of the defendants pleaded guilty with the exception of Arthur Bundy. Police constable William Evington deposed that on Sunday, the 5th inst., about eleven o'clock in the morning, he saw a party of boys in the road, about half-a-mile from the village, and on getting nearer to them he saw that they were all throwing half-pence up in the air. He saw the mark they were pitching at ın the middle of the road; but as soon as they saw him they ran away. He had had occasion to speak to almost all of them before about it, but they had not taken much notice of it. Superintendent Hull said that as many complaints had been made to him about this rapidly increasing nuisance, he had felt it his duty to send a policeman in plain clothes to watch the proceedings of the men and boys in the village on Sundays. and he was determined to put a stop to it at once. The magistrates fined them half-a-crown each , and cautioned them against offending any more.

Viewed from the top of the old Station Bridge, the white rail belongs to the footpath leading down into ‘The White Hart’.

Bottom left is the entrance into the Railway Station goods yard.

The Primary School's play shelter is the building on the left with the school’s main gate by the two Ash trees.

In the left back ground is the garage of ‘Stockbridge Motors’ adjacent to that ‘The Ship Inn’.

Over on the right is ‘The Seven Gables Guest House’.
