15 Bridge Road was demolished in 2013 to make an access road for ten new houses. Nik Stevens, who lived at number 15 in the 1970s, wrote:
“We had a lovely little apple orchard, some eaters and the rest cookers. There was also a single old plum tree right at the top of the garden. We had quite a harvest, with myself and three sisters picking the fruit. Along the right hand side grew blackcurrant and gooseberry bushes, with a rhubarb patch at the top.
As a child about 12 years old, I came into possession of an old bath. I always wanted a pond; so I promptly set about sinking said bath into the ground and soon had a very unique water feature complete with taps.
I wonder what the builders thought of that whilst destroying my home.”
