White Gates was built for Harry Jude in 1930 and occupied by him until at least 1955. He owned and worked the sand & gravel pits that surrounded the four homes of which White Gates is one. Later occupants were the Smiths who reared pigs there. They were followed by the Searles who kept the piggeries but not the pigs.

In 1980 planning permission was granted to build a sun lounge.

  • Which are the others of the four homes you mention? I am betting that one is “Serotina” because when my family moved in in 1979 the name on the entrance was “Judes Hollow”.

  • Hi Hilda
    The four were Hazelbridge, Birdlip, White Gates and Fieldside (originally called Bengalee, now called Honeybet). The 1971 Ordnance Survey map shows only these four on the right at the end of Button End. Serotina must have been built after 1971
