Standing Building Recording (1 February 2011 - 2 February 2011)

ND 3107 9506 A Level 3 standing building survey was undertaken 1–2 February 2011 on a timber bungalow at 2 Right Row prior to its proposed demolition. The structure was the last surviving house in a row of four, which formed part of a WW2 Officers complex to the E of Baldry’s Camp. Documentary and cartographic evidence suggested that the building was completed in 1940. The eight room house was constructed entirely of timber and contained many original features, including doors, tongue-and-groove and gas lamps, although some renovations had been carried out.
