Billet Lane

I can confirm Pittle Lane does not exist in Hornchurch, this is in fact Billet Lane out side what is now the Doctors and Dentist surgeries 58, 58A & 58B Billet Lane. Both the properties on the right hand side still occupy the land. Although 60 Billet Lane sold its orchard off to build 58A Billet Lane in 1953. 58 Billet Lane, the doctors, sold its orchard off to make way for the new doctors surgery 58B Billet Lane in the early 1970's. The oak tree in the background was made into window and door furniture for 58A Billet Lane. Great picture.
