Grandly named, the Home Appliance Centre is quite a small shop. I often wonder how it manages to compete with the large chain retailers. The housing in the shade of the trees at the left is 1970s infill. I have been informed by a fellow contributor that the shop was an extension built in the late 1920s by Edwin Blake and Sons who were local builders whose family lived in the main house SU1483 : 221 Kingshill Road, Swindon Originally the shop sold decorating materials such as paint and wallpaper. The entrance to the car park provided access to the Blakes' builder's yard where there was also a lime pit.
