The Gables

The Gables Now Bayford House

We know that The Gables was built by George Elms in 1902 because of the inscription embedded over the front door.

A full description of the original building and grounds  is contained in sale particulars of 1906.

Looking at local directories we can see that Mr & Mrs Percy Sharpe were living in the house from 1903-1906

The 1911 census shows  Mr Edward Bressey, a retired jeweller from London, in residence. He and his family lived in the house until his death in 1936.
