Bramley Mead, Hornsby
Bramley Mead reflects change in Hornsby's economy and settlement. It was originally built in the 19th century as a short terrace of small houses for agricultural workers. The development included a separate detached wash house building. During the 20th century, the number of dwellings in the terrace reduced as individual houses were joined up to form larger ones. In 1973 there were two dwellings. One was occupied by the family of a railway signalman and part-time farmer, the son of a local farmer married to the daughter of a local farmer. The other was occupied by myself and my wife, a young professional couple who had moved up from London to work in Carlisle. We were among the first 'incomers' to live in Hornsby, which had no 20th century buildings at that time Bramley Mead is now a large detached house of an executive/managerial kind. The wash house is a garage. In the early 1970s Hornsby was still essentially an agricultural settlement. Now it is a commuter village.
