No 7 Sheepshead Lane

The present bungalow was built in 1956 to replace the earlier thatched cottage. The well which served the villagers is still in the front garden of with water about 2 foot below ground level, was used.

An extract from the conveyance of the cottage from Lance Northrop to Christopher Gatward (1938) includes the words “together with the right in common with others having the like right to¬†use and take water from the well situate on the land now or late of the said Arthur Hurrell”)

Permission to demolish the cottage and erect a bungalow was granted in 1956

Jim Malyon ran a business from the replacement bungalow and the surrounding land It was a nursery/landscape gardening business and he ran this from 1975 to 1985. He called it “Land Surveys” Tree and Shrub centre and did a good trade selling Christmas trees.

The current owners bought the bungalow in 1985 and set up a business manufacturing concrete paving slabs – Peytons Pavings, which manufactured and sold direct to the public until the business closed in 2006.
