I wouldn't be surprised if Rydon or Sutton Council acquire the land and build a couple of houses on it as part of the redevelopment of Corbet. After all, they did try and buy the land a few years ago with no success!
fascinating re the cadet hut.... nice plot, useful size... what shall we dream up there??
hi Jo i will have to go through my photos, i am sure i do have some but please be patient i am just getting over a heart attack at 85 bit tricky Doris H
what large trees are still there a lovely Horse Chestnut by the back entrance to the Green and another about the area that the flats are in,various fruit trees aside the river in the far corner and Cedar trees to the left of the drive as you come along . This property should never have been destroyed,it was the start of Hackbridge so in my book it was a HERITAGE PROPERTY and should have been kept, as i have said before it was in good repair and only needed minor repairs and may i say ,after building my own house here in Aussie with my Husband and i mean just the two of us i could do it myself.Doris H
Hi Jo,i am Doris Hartin nee Chamberlain, please let me put you right about the Hackbridge House,Drill Hall, City house, all previous names for the same house ,in my case the same Home.
First the Cadets were not there in a Hostel ,they came on several days , their office was the gate house they used the actual Drill Hall position behind the big House and the Firing Range on top of the Large Garages, The TA had the Large house untill about the 1950s.
The dwellings along the front were for Service Families as we were told, i only know of the cottages along the Green it is not possible for any to be on the other side of The Green because of the trees, there were large trees along from The Red Lion to the bridge,also there was not any miscellaneous developement, How do i know? because i grew up in the Hackbridge House
and lived there after i was married and had Children, my Father was Caretaker there for Finsbury Barracks in London and Died there+ and yes i agree it should be called Hackbridge Gardens. Just putting things right.
Lots of discussion about the big house which stood where Corbet Close is now - on the Old Hackbridge photo:
