The changing face of Thundersley Village

No.57 Hart Road

By Ian Hawks

In 1986 demolition started on the offices and yard of local builder C. W. Wiggins which included a mini industrial estate.

The old barn and farmhouse which was part of Raymond’s farm on this site in the late 1890's were also demolished.

The land was then taken over by BUPA for the building of a nursing home, Godden Lodge.
