The first house on the left in the photograph is No 1 Jubilee Road, and the house my parents moved into in 1931. I was only five years old but quite well remember other building going on as the road developed. Just a little before the vanishing point in this photograph , there is a road off to the left, named Coronation Road and then two more roads further on. Quite a sizeable estate of originally all social housing built for the local 'Rural Council' at that time. During Mrs. Thatcher's Conservative Government many of the houses were purchased under the controversial 'Right to Buy' scheme .
Immediately beyond the vanishing point in this picture, in 1931 were fields and orchards where children would play .......... and 'scrump' apples and other fruit.
All of these houses in Jubilee Road are semi-detached and I believe there is 60 just in this road.
