A postcard (circa 1900) showing the approach into the village of Bank from the Lyndhurst Road. Many of the properties in Bank were built by Mary Braddon and her husband John Maxwell.

'Miss Braddon's Cottage at Lyndhurst.'
The house was small to begin with, but was extended over the years.

Annesley Bank later became a Barnardo's home for children. By coincidence, Braddon was a contributing writer for a book published to raise money for the Barnardo Fund.
