Fair View

These pictures are taken from a collection of the late Kenilworth historian John H Drew’s negatives, and passed on to historian Graham Gould as a reminder of lost Kenilworth.

They show Kenilworth Junction Box in 1965 and 4 Fair View which stood near the Bear and Ragged Staff pub.

Last week the Weekly News published a picture of 95 to 99 School Lane, known locally as Noah’s Ark, which reader Eileen Hunt recognised.

She said: “My grandmother Ada Spraggett lived at 95 Shcool Lane, Noah’s Ark, by the mill brook from the 1940s until she was rehoused in 1962.

“She lived there until she was 94 years old and I remember it being very damp and she couldn’t keep food in the pantry as it would go mouldy.

“Most years the brook would flood her brick floored kitchen during the spring floods and it would be ankle deep in water.

“She died aged 95, so it appears that her years living in primitive housing didn’t cause much harm.”
