This photograph shows what is described as the “Lawn Estate” at Shotgate, and is possibly dated c.1930. It shows houses, probably built by the owners, andĀ individual plots for sale – denoted by the fencing posts .

However, I can find no record of “The Lawn Estate”. In a local history of Shotgate, Archers Farm, whose land was sold to develop the area, is described only as the Shotgate Estate. Does anyone have any information on this?

  • I lived at no.19 Fanton Walk, a semi; the other semi was Cubberly, from Clovelly, North Devon. They had a son who liked motor bikes. In 1947/9 elections, a Sid Purland, owner of the repair garage, went to go for an election which Bernard Braine won.
