This site is NOT open to public.
Brief description of site
Ashleigh had a house with grounds to the north-east of Broak's Avenue. There were open fields on all other sides. It was a small rectangular plot with the house in a roughly central position. The entrance drive ran through a wooded area, with a probable productive garden to the rear. The house was surrounded by a lawned pleasure ground.
The site is now lost, and has been developed for housing.
Brief history of site
This was one of a number of similar developments in the area. Oakleigh is another example (see separate entry). The site was called Oak Bank by the late-19th-century.
