High Wycombe: Early industrial units on Lancaster Road
High Wycombe: Early industrial units on Lancaster Road
These six small industrial units were probably the earliest buildings on the Cressex Industrial Estate, now the Cressex Business Park. The 1938 Edition of the large scale Ordnance Survey map does not show them but the 1960 version certainly does, dating them probably to the 1950s.

The cones in the centre of the road were demarcating temporary one-way traffic workings while an underground service was being laid, as evidenced by the new trench scar in the foreground, when the photograph was taken.
