BHOD 13 - Warleigh Road and Environs


Description - Explore past and present in suburban streets built for railway managers. Join local resident Maire McQueeney for an hour stroll in the Preston (south) neighbourhood where she lives with husband, local historian Mike Strong. From paving stone to roof tiles and finials the local houses tell of changing fortunes as villas built for fashionable Victorian family living quickly changed to multiple occupancy. Vere Road, girlhood home of QueenSpark author Daisy Noakes, intrigues with its elegant raised pavement & railings, mysterious relic of St Saviour's Church, and the latest fashion for energy smart living. You are welcome to book for this tour which ends with a peek inside the famous historic garden at 5 Warleigh Road where refreshments will be available. The event is offered free of charge by local residents.
