Land in St Lawrence Close

News from Dorothy Richards

I wondered if anybody knows, or knows someone that knows, what the land was like just before 1970 -72 when the houses in St Lawrence Close were built?

One local builder who did a job here remarked that the remains of an old filling station were dumped here so he wasn’t surprised about what I found in the garden. This may explain why one piece of garden kills everything that I plant in it. Luckily it is out of sight. No one else in the Close has the problem of rubble under the ground.
