Hart Road, Thundersley Village

Photos taken from the front garden of number 85, opposite The White Hart

By Ian Hawks

In 1950, we moved from Hadleigh into No 85 Hart Road; one of the Wiggins-built new houses. The second photo was taken just after we moved in, the third when a petrol station and workshop were built on the field.

These were demolished in 2004 and replaced by a block of retirement flats.

No. 85 is now a Doctor's surgery.

Hello

I am sure the photo of the service station is newer than the 1960s 

I'm sure the pumps were removed in the 1980s and the car in it is a Citroen Xantia which came out in the early 90s 

The only reason I have a lot of interest in this, is that my uncle was the owner and mechanic there for many years.  The window to the right was my other uncle's dry cleaners and my grandad used to live in the flat at the top right.

Hope this is of help
