For 25 years after the development by Council flats and houses of this estate, the old house remained a Victorian relic in the midst of 1950s buildings. It seems to have been built in the 1850s, at some periods being known as Sylvan Villa and Sylvan Lodge. For many years recently it had been split up into several flats. Photographed on 29 April 1976, the old house was demolished during the following year, and the cleared site used for modern council flats.
