Buildings in their former glory
LOOKING BACK asked readers a few weeks ago if they had any other photos of the Tudor Mansions in Woodgate after newly uncovered photos from Mary Sills shed some light on the demolition of the buildings.
Echo reporter Liam Coleman discovered the photos as we were moving office, but in a fine coincidence it turned out that it was 25 years since the buildings were demolished.
Now regular Looking Backer Mike Jones has sent in some photos of the buildings in all their former glory.
Mike said that during research he had found reference to John Paget in 1837.
He said: “This is interesting, as the Paget family occupied Southfields House, now the Council Offices, which are just on the opposite side of Southfields Road to what was the back of Tudor Mansions.”
He said: “Also could there be any connection to Victoria’s accession to the throne in that year?”
Mike also said that the partly demolished entrance pictured in Looking Back a few weeks ago is actually the former front entrance to Tudor Mansions.
Do you know anything more about the Tudor Mansions in Woodgate? Or do you even have any more photos of the building? Please contact Liam Coleman on 01509 635806 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
