A gallery of some of the older houses
In preparation for the Society’s exhibition “Bowling Alley to Southdown” on 3 September 2016, photos of some of the older houses were taken – see the sequence below, which starts with even numbers on the east side of the road.
We are promised more information about Coronation Cottages (4a/4beta), and hope that other residents will look out old deeds, photos or anecdotes about this road, which seems to have been established during the 1890s.
Among documents recently donated from the collection of maps and architectural drawings by Arthur & Stanley Salisbury, were designs for “Houses in Coleswood Road”, on the west side of the road, and nearly opposite Kingcroft Road – but it seems that their plans were not accepted: 17-35 Coleswood Road, marked with ** were built instead.
