Electricity Sub Station
Behind The Bungalow (HER 8500), Ormond Villa (HER 8539) and the Lord Nelson (HER 8536) is an area of 20th century backland development, accessed from the north footpath (HER 8499). This area includes a dwelling house converted from a former sub station and a number of outbuildings, set in secluded gardens behind tall brick walls, fences and evergreen hedges, creating a suitably low density but essentially neutral area of backland.
