For many years after the northern parts of the Drive and Wilbury Estates were developed, a large area enclosed within the Drive, Cromwell Road and Wilbury Road was given over to tennis courts, first grass and later, hard courts. In all they must have been in use for more than 80 years. For several years from 1968 it was thought that Seeboard might build large offices on this site but in 1975 the plan was abandoned, Seeboard deciding to stay they were in Grand Avenue. The area is now to be used for housing and these photographs were taken on 10 July 1977, so that a pictorial record of the original scene can be preserved. They were taken from the Wilbury end. This one above looks north-west to Cromwell Road.
