According to the Borough Engineer’s Report dated 9th March 1953, part of the front gardens of these houses was bought by the council to widen the footpath. Miss J. Hawker, owner of number 207 demanded £25 for the loss of land and said that the council should rebuild the existing fence wall and rehang the gate. The same terms applied to Mr W. Dalton, owner of number 205.
