The north end of Sandringham Road in Penn.

All complete are the nine three-bedroomed houses built on the site of the demolished Battle of Britain public house. This side of the wooden fence used to be the car park. Now the developers have to find some buyers.

update 2 Nov 2013: Notice the three mature hawthorn trees, probably planted in the early 1960s. I noticed that all three trees here in Sandringham Road had very stunted growth during July, and appeared to be dying. By the last week in October 2013 these had been felled. Strange how all three died the same year.
