Wormley: Bridewell Park
Bridewell Park is a new housing apartment development by Charles Church LinkExternal link replacing the former Institute of Oceanographic Studies which used to be on this site, and indeed, according to the current Ordnance Survey 1:10,000 mapping, still is! The current 1:25,000 scale mapping though does show the new building illustrating that not all scales of mapping are kept up to date simultaneously. The picture also illustrates how sites close to railway stations (Witley in this case, about 10 minutes walk away) with direct links to London are popular with residential developers. The development however met with much opposition from local residents who feared that an instant increase in the number of homes in Wormley by about a third would have a detrimental effect on the local service infrastructure of utilities and roads.
