Fear not – this isn’t a new proposal to create an estate off Biddenham Turn!
In the late 1950s a development was planned – the Biddenham Turn Estate – and subsequently constructed. We know it now as Darlow Drive and Elger Close.
An illustrated brochure was published and the cover and some pages are reproduced below. It’s fascinating to compare the aerial photographs with that part of the village as we see it today. And can you spot the steam train? A real blast from the past.
