Additional information

This plot, once owned by the Yorkes of Bewerley Hall, was included in the 1920s sale of the estate.
By the time of World War 2 the land was being used by some of the villagers as allotments; the owner of one of the bungalows remembers these becoming derelict by 1950 and the land then being used for grazing.
It was subsequently built on by the Foxton brothers.
