Westburn Fields

This month’s photograph records the continuation of the latest development in Westburn Fields. The estate was built after World War 2, and has been upgraded over the years.
Last month work started on replacing the some of the original Scandinavian timber framed bungalows, and we shall be following progress on the site over the coming months.
You can find our more about Westburn Fields by either following Lower Froyle (map & links) from the Contents menu and clicking on Westburn Fields, or using the jump menu below.

This month we hope to be able to increase our knowledge of the 1939 Register. Much more will be made available through “Find My Past” from the middle of the month and we hope to enhance our records accordingly.
There are still some major gaps, but, as with the Censuses, the record depends on the presence of people on Friday, September 29th 1939. There are constraints on the availability of information, but these are explained on The 1939 Register, accesible either via the jump menu at the bottom of this page or through The Records & Census from Contents.
