In April 1941, a land mine fell in waste ground adjoining Nevill Road and Goldstone Way. The blast severely damaged the end eight houses in Nevill Road, 215-229. After the war they had to be completely rebuilt.

Newspaper report: ”Several houses in a residential area of a South Coast town were badly damaged on Monday night when a heavy bomb fell on some allotments near by. Although some of the houses were rendered uninhabitable and others will require first-aid attention before they can be lived in, there were only ten casualties, all of them slight.”
