The end of Bugdens Lane.

This gentle rural scene was immediately to the right from the picture above.

The beginning of Bugdens Copse. Beyond the area to the left is where Safeways now stands.

Getting into the copse.

12 September 1976      [1/S/21]

Copse Road looking up towards Vicarage Road.

The Ordnance Survey map of 1963 shows Copse Road as being called Windmill Road. This was undoubtedly correct as there was a wind-driven artesian well near the road.
