    Both of these bungalows,the prefab originally built by the Trundle family with much excitement, in the 1950’s , and the new build from the 1980’s built for Mr and Mrs Mitchell on the edge of the Chapel Yard gardens across the road from the Yard, are now in the 21st century second homes, or holiday homes, which are not permanently lived in.

    This far end house of Chapel Yard was lived in by Miss Leah Stangroom in the 1950’s and 1960’s, an elderly lady , a friend of my Grandma. She was probably the daughter of Mr Stangroom who was in charge of the Wesleyan Chapel next door in the Docking Road, which was closed in the 1920’s or 1930’s due to disrepair and low number in the congregation, as well as the amalgamation of Chapel memberships.
    Since the late 20th century all of this row of Chapel Yard houses and the chapel have become holiday homes, or second homes, which are not permanently lived in.

    The back view of houses in Docking Road, and not Chapel Yard.
    On the right is the edge of the prefab bungalow called Arlene built by Pauline and Arthur Walker. Demolished in 2020 to make way for a new build house called Field View I think.
    In the foreground the solitary house was originally lived in by Mrs Wright the postwoman. It was accessed past the prefab bungalow and was not lived in for many years.It was demolished about 2015.
    At right angles to that, in the background are the houses in Bakers Yard.,
    I do not know what the long agricultural building was.
    Chapel Yard is at right angles beyond this.
