My grandmother used to live in Woodside Avenue and the back garden backed onto the property. I remember going to a garden party in about 1960. Incidently, my grandmothers house first house on the site was destroyed in the Blitz and ironically the house I remember in the 1950s/early 1960s was demolished to make access to the new housing development.

I remember calling at a large detached house just before the A45, I was was working for West Midlands Gas Board at the time, this would be in 1962. I probably called to attend to a fault on the central heating boiler. The lady at the house told me she was Mrs Tugby from Rugby, I believe the family ran a wholesale fruit and veg business in the market. I searched Tugby and came up with a Church of England School in Leicestershire, I wonder if this was anything to do with the Tugby family. Perhaps someone will be able to check if the Tugby family were living there in 1962.

Midland Red Thank you for finding the name and and address for 37 Kenilworth Road, I now know that my long term memory is OK. Was 37 demolished when the new development was built?
