White Cottage can be seen in the distance and beyond the playground. This is before the residential estate was built and the area was surrounded by cornfields. White Cottage was the home of Mr. Howard, the Headmaster of Hugh Christie School, for a number of years. A greenhouse is visible to the rear of the property which was later used by pupils who had lessons in gardening and farming on the site. Small animals and chickens were kept in this area.

The above photograph shows the same view of White Cottage today - 50 years later. It is the property to the left, but it has undergone some changes making it almost unrecognisable. The house to the right is on the site of greenhouse.
