Jane Ratcliffe unveiling Troyte Griffith plaque

A new blue plaque was unveiled on 28th June to mark the house of local architect and artist Arthur Troyte Griffith. Troyte lived at Fairview, Lower Wyche Road for over 30 years.

He was a great friend of Edward Elgar who was to dedicate one of his Enigma Variations, (no. VII), to Troyte.

The plaque was unveiled by Mrs Jane Ratcliffe who as a young girl had lived next door to Troyte.

Jane captivated everyone with her memories of the house and garden as it was in the 1930s.
