The Laurels, Lindford - a Memory of Lindford.
I stayed with my Grandfather and Grandmother Group Capt and Mrs Allerston in the 1960's during the Summer Holidays and sometimes at Christmas, I used to love the old big house. There was a big sweeping driveway which went past the front door (which was arched) and around the side of the house, there was a long Laurel hedge down one side of the house with ten to fifteen large fir trees. I think the house has been demolished to make way for a new housing estate as I can't find it on google maps.
For a time in the early 60's he ran a chicken farm there with two thousand chickens however they contracted foulpest and had to be destroyed.
They moved to Ashill in the late 60's
