Prof, are you sure of this? Your picture is of Longford Square, I always thought the Tom Mann house was Grange Rd, just before the turn to Sutton Stop?

Bohica, I agree with that location of Tom Mann house. I am sure it saw in Grange Road, we used to deliver newspapers to houses there in 1963.

Don’t know the area but adverts and articles in the newspaper archive say Hurst Road, Longford.

Hurst Road runs into Grange Road that may be the reason, I have seen the address given as 177 Grange Road on a CovGov site and a British Listed Buildings site on the internet.

You are right, Bohica, as the photo was of Market Square, Longford, with Salem Baptist Church in r/h background. This is the Thomas Mann house. Edited by member, 29th Sep 2020 11:30 pm

My grandmother kept a sweet shop in Grange Road for many years, Mrs Rowley, she kept it from 1911 till 1953.

Tom Mann house is definitely in Grange Road. An old peoples home named after him was near the entrance to the park.

Karen, Sorry there was no house in Grange road on either side, between Jackers road and Longford Park, jackers rd side was allotments, the other side was field and Foxford school and the Fox inn on the corner,1930 to1950. The Fox inn may have been Grange rd or Hurst rd. it was on both. unless you mean some park of recent years.

I am getting confused here (again) are we talking about 2 places, Tom Mann’s house where he was born in Grange Road, and Tom Mann House, old peoples home?

I think I have got my old head round it now, Helen. As I said I don’t know that part of the city. Tom Mann’s house in Grange Road was where he was born. Tom Mann House was a purpose built home for 47 elderly men and women in Hurst Road. I did not realise there were two Tom Mann houses and could not see how they could get 47 elderly people in his house!! Is the old people’s home (sorry, carehome) still there?

Helen, Annewiggy. It may have been where he was born, but did not live there for long, and certainly wasn't recognised as living there until long after he died. Not on any of Heathite’s lists. And that nursing home wasn’t built for over a century after he was born. But I do believe the guy that did live there in the thirties era was named Bond and I knew him. lf so, I have been in the house. As I have with Lote, Lanchbury, Finch and scores of Grange Road people. It was less than 200 yds from Foxford School.
