Do you remember these two semi-detached houses that once stood opposite the Green Lodge car park in Kings Gap?
These attractive Victorian houses were purchased and then, a long time later, demolished to make way for the retirement apartments that are there today. As planning permission wasn’t granted for what was probably a few years, the houses were boarded-up and stood vacant. The properties were demolished in March, 2007. The right-hand semi (number 18, The Kings Gap) in my photo above was, according to a land registry research, sold in 1995 for £80,000 (those were the days hey!). Oddly, I can’t find any data for number 20, so perhaps the records don’t go back far enough?
