The First Rural Council Houses. - a Memory of Ixworth.

This village has the very first Rural Council Houses in England,- not pictured in your photographs,- but situated in Stow Road. They were built by the Thingoe R.D.C. following a lengthy argument and legal demands by the Ixworth Labourer's Association supported by Sydney Stern, the local M.P who went on to become Lord Wandsworth..
