Laburnum House and Windmill Common

Laburnam House, 1983/4.

Front view, west. A very isolated house. Access on track to Carr Houses and then through the railway bridge. Stands far side of railway track. Can also be approached by track from the top of Junction Hill.
Now a private residence, completely altered and modernised and bears no resemblance to the Isolation Hospital it used to be; then it was surrounded by a high wall. It was used for patients who had contracted once prevalent infectious diseases, such as scarlet fever, diptheria and maybe smallpox

Windmill Common, ie. west side of Common.

This shows a pair of modern semi-detached bungalows with older properties behind and to the left. There is a row of four, one of which used to house the shop, and two rows of older cottages beyond.
