Mosley agreed to be present because he mistakenly believed Diana and Unity's mother, Lady Redesdale, was accompanying Unity. Others demanded a trial, either in the hope it would end the detention or in the hope of a conviction. After a fierce debate in the House of Commons, Morrison's action was upheld by a vote of — On his release from prison, he first stayed with his sister-in-law Pamela Mitford , followed shortly by a stay at the Shaven Crown Hotel in Shipton-under-Wychwood.
After the war, Mosley was contacted by his former supporters and persuaded to return to participation in politics. He formed the Union Movement , which called for a single nation-state to cover the continent of Europe known as Europe a Nation and later attempted to launch a National Party of Europe to this end. The Union Movement's meetings were often physically disrupted, as Mosley's meetings had been before the war, and largely by the same opponents.
This led to Mosley's decision, in , to leave Britain and live in Ireland. Of his decision to leave, he said, "You don't clear up a dungheap from underneath it. Shortly after the Notting Hill race riots , Mosley briefly returned to Britain to stand in the general election at Kensington North. Mosley led his campaign stridently on an anti-immigration platform, calling for forced repatriation of Caribbean immigrants as well as a prohibition upon mixed marriages. Mosley's final share of the vote was 7.
In he took part in a debate at University College London about Commonwealth immigration, seconded by a young David Irving. In , by which time he was suffering from Parkinson's disease , he was nominated as a candidate for Rector of the University of Glasgow in which election he polled over votes but finished bottom of the poll. By his first wife, Lady Cynthia Curzon , Mosley had three children. His first son, born his second child, inherited the baronetcy, and in he became the third Baron Ravensdale , a title that passed through his mother's line.
By his second wife, Diana Mitford — , he had two sons: Mosley died on 3 December at Orsay outside Paris, France. His body was cremated in a ceremony held at the Père Lachaise Cemetery , and his ashes were scattered on the pond at Orsay. His son Alexander stated that they had received many messages of condolences but no abusive words. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Archived from the original on 13 January Councillors who supported the British Legion were keen to support the ex-servicemen running the Blue Bus Company.
This offer was accepted, the Company was taken over on 4th May , and the eight ex-servicemen who ran it were given jobs with the Corporation to continue to run the same bus route.
This service was known as the Garden Village buses and the terminus was extended to the City boundary on James Reckitt Avenue near where Gillshill Road was to be built. Official bus stops were sited in Newbridge Road. A return fare of 2d. The Garden Village buses had solid tyres and houses in Craven Street and Newbridge Road used to vibrate when these buses passed.
Carlill, the secretary of the Garden Village Hull Ltd, drawing attention to the desirability of the Garden Village bus route being via James Reckitt Avenue instead of Lilac Avenue as many complaints of ceilings being damaged had been received and there was a danger to pedestrians and other traffic owing to the trees, the narrowness of Lilac Avenue and the buses taking sharp turnings.
It seems that the solid tyred Garden Village buses continued to use Lilac Avenue. The City boundary was extended on 1st April and Sutton then became part of Hull. One extra bus was to be put on the route.
It would seem that there was some problem after the route was extended to Sutton as, at the Tramways Committee meeting on 15th April , Southcoates Ward Councillor Till raised the question of the Garden Village bus service and whether anything could be done to improve it. In June , the secretary of the Southcoates Ward Labour Association wrote asking the Transport Committee to consider the advisability of running a 10 minute bus service from Paragon Station to Garden Village, also to increase the number of buses linking up Garden Village with Sutton.
Garden Village Buses via Dansom Lane. In , the Corporation introduced two bus services to the Garden Village.
After the City's boundary was extended in , the number 33 was re-numbered 40 and the route was extended to a terminus on James Reckitt Avenue near Ings Road. The number 39 service was extended along Gillshill Road to a terminus near Tweendykes Road in and was re-numbered 33 and some of these buses went further to Sutton Annexe now Princess Royal Hospital at visiting times from 2 nd November Holderness Road Trolley Buses.
The Holderness Road trams were withdrawn on 17 February and the number 64 trolleybus service started the next day. Later, a number 68 trolley service which did not go the full distance was run at peak times. After some air raids in the war, the trolleybus services were disrupted as, to avoid unexploded bombs, they could not make a detour as the petrol buses could. Also, the trolleybuses could not run if the trolley wires were down when the building they had been fixed to had been bombed but the wires were quickly repaired and the trolleybuses resumed services.
In the early s, there were long queues at the trolleybus stops when Hull City fans were going to a match. The number 64 trolleybus service was withdrawn on 21 st September There were then several bus services on Holderness Road going to the outlying estates.
Post War Bus Services. In , work was being carried out widening Stoneferry Road and, because of delays there, many more Bransholme buses were re-routed via Lilac Avenue. Many Lilac Avenue residents complained about the excessive number of buses passing their houses and, much to the disgust of some James Reckitt Avenue residents, bus services using Lilac Avenue were re-routed along James Reckitt Avenue in September In recent years, there have been many re-numbered and re-routed bus services using Holderness Road and James Reckitt Avenue.
A number 35 and 36 Royale bus service on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays was started by the City Council in April but did not last very long as it was poorly used. This was a circular route. The 35 left the coach station and went via Hessle Road, St. The 36 used the same route in the opposite direction. By September , these buses were running on Thursdays and Fridays only and the services were withdrawn in April At first, there were long delays at the Holderness Road traffic lights at peak times for southbound Mount Pleasant traffic and the number 9 and 15 buses often took five minutes when travelling along Mount Pleasant towards Holderness Road.
The number of passengers on the buses was falling as more and more Hull people acquired cars. Hull Corporation Transport tried to maintain frequent services and low fares but the undertaking was becoming unprofitable.
The Conservative Government did not like bus services being subsidised from the rates and decreed that Local Authorities could not run transport services. Hull Corporation Transport was given to the workers.
After a while, the workers sold out to Stagecoach and that company reduced the frequency of services and increased fares. A number 70 minibus Stagecoach service started using Laburnum Avenue on 15th December Buses running in both directions turn off down Laburnum Avenue and go down Chamberlain Road to the Stoneferry Road roundabout and then return via Chamberlain Road and Laburnum Avenue to continue their journey along Holderness Road.
During the war, no bombs dropped in the Garden Village. Zeppelins passed overhead but the nearest street affected by bombing was Waller Street, which was on Holderness Road near the present Mount Pleasant.
Many young men volunteered for the armed forces and, in , a Corporation tram, bedecked with recruiting adverts, was running along Holderness Road. Volunteers were asked to jump on for a free ride to the City Hall to enlist. There were many casualties in the Great War and conscription was introduced in The war memorial at Reckitt's in Dansom Lane records that employees were killed.
Some of these young men would have been Garden Village residents. Life was hard during the war. Dependants of servicemen only received small allowances. Owing to shipping losses by U boats, many things were in short supply.
Local people were very upset because Hull had no anti-aircraft guns and, when Zeppelins came over, they could drop bombs unhindered. Towards the end of the war, National Kitchens were introduced. These were usually in shops and distributed food to poor people. Many servicemen were injured and, after the war, there were many men in Hull who had lost an arm or a leg. When the second world war started in , the Nation was more prepared. Gas-masks had been issued. Conscription was introduced at once.
Identity Cards were issued and food rationing started. Air-raid sirens were installed on the roofs of schools and other public buildings and a policeman was stationed there to switch them on when informed by phone of a red alert. During the war, the sirens in Hull sounded on occasions and there were 82 air raids when high explosive or incendiary bombs dropped within the Hull boundary.
Schoolchildren were evacuated to safer parts of the country in September but many returned to Hull after about six months as there had been no bombing.
Unlike the first world war, Hull was well defended with anti-aircraft guns, barrage balloons and searchlights. Not very far from the Garden Village, there was a battery of 4. There was a well-organised Civil Defence force with air-raid wardens, rescue teams and fire-watchers equipped with stirrup pumps. A large static water tank was constructed on the Holderness House Paddock so that fire engines would be able to get water if the mains supply had been bombed. As the Reckitt's Girls Hostel had thick walls and concrete floors, it was taken over by the Civil Defence and used as a control centre.
Air-raid shelters were supplied to houses. The earlier ones were 'Anderson' shelters made of curved corrugated iron and these were usually installed with the floor about two feet below ground level. Later, brick shelters were supplied with a reinforced concrete flat roof. The City was blacked out at night. Lamp posts had white rings painted around them so that people would not bump into them in the dark. People were getting used to a life of shortages and rationing of food and clothing when the bombing raids started.
The Garden Village was badly damaged in air raids. It was not bad at first. On 26th June , a small bomb landed on the ten-foot between 1 Lilac Avenue and James Reckitt Avenue but the crater was filled in and concreted over the next day. About 25 nearby houses were slightly damaged. Some people were killed and many were injured. Many houses had broken windows and dislodged tiles on the roof. The streets were covered with shrapnel and nose cones from anti-aircraft shells.
The Village Hall was rendered unusable and the Club House was badly damaged. The next bad air-raid was on the night of 18th July In this raid, it is said that an 'Anderson' shelter was blown right across James Reckitt Avenue and through the roof of the Civil Defence centre now Pashby House. This was the raid when about three-quarters of Reckitt's Dansom Lane Works were destroyed and the bombs in the Garden Village might have been intended for Reckitt's.
A large number of houses were damaged in these raids and numerous building workers were drafted into Hull from other cities. When damaged roofs were repaired, old tiles were re-used and new tiles were often fixed in the shape of a victory 'V'. Broken windows were repaired with what glass was available and distorted glass of greenhouse quality was often used. When glass became unavailable, translucent waterproof cloth was fixed over broken windows.
Columba's Church was destroyed in the next to last air raid of the war. Bombs dropped in the early hours of 14th July and the Church and some nearby shops were completely destroyed.
The Church Hall, in Laburnum Avenue, was not badly damaged and services were held there until September Arthur Berry, the Vicar of Drypool, claimed that Drypool was the most bombed parish of the most bombed town in England. He remained in Hull throughout the war and left the parish in When families were bombed out, accommodation had to be found for them. Many bombed out families in the Garden Village were re-housed in vacant houses in the estate.
The Dresser family were bombed out of a semi-detached house in Lime Tree Avenue and were re-housed at 81 Village Road, a large detached house once occupied by Mr. Dresser was still there more than 60 years later. There were some unusual cases of war damage.
Oxford plane crash-landed on the privet hedge between and Laburnum Avenue on 13th October ; the wings were broken off the plane, and the rear walls of both houses were slightly damaged. The fuselage of the plane looked undamaged, the pilot was unhurt and the flattened privet hedge eventually recovered.
When the barrage balloon on the Triangle was being winched in on 7th December , there was a strong wind blowing and the cable slightly damaged 12 Elm Avenue; and 17 Village Road was slightly damaged by an anti-aircraft shell on 9 March Later in the war, iron railings were removed from houses and it as said that they would be used for the war effort. The iron railings alongside the Laburnum Avenue ten-foot were cut off and also those alongside Elstronwick Avenue and Durham Street.
The iron back gates were cut off in the Garden Village and the iron posts of the front gates were removed. The iron railings between Maple Grove houses and the static water tank in the paddock were left and an iron gate to the ten-foot at the side of 11 Village Road seems to have been overlooked as it was still there in the s.
Everyone was overjoyed when the war ended in and huge crowds assembled in Queens Gardens for the victory celebrations. There were shortages immediately after the war. Food, clothing and coal were still rationed. Bread rationing was introduced after the war had ended.
Building materials were in short supply and rebuilding of bombed properties was not done immediately. Rebuilding was eventually done and it was paid for by the War Damage Commission.
Damage to the Club House was repaired but the Village Hall was not rebuilt. When a house, part of a block, was rebuilt, it was built to match the rest of the block at the front but rear single-storey parts, originally with tiled roofs, were rebuilt with flat concrete roofs.
From the front, the only thing to show that the house was rebuilt is the different type of iron gutter and supporting brackets. The house and shop, 1 The Shopping Centre, is an outstanding example of a rebuilt property, perfectly matching the rest of the building at the front.
A large concrete raft was made over the bomb crater before this shop was rebuilt. Although the foundations differ from the original, there has been no differential settlement. When the whole of a block, or a pair of semi-detached houses, was rebuilt, it did not perfectly match the original. As building timber was rationed, these houses were built with concrete ground floors and metal window frames. As they were rebuilt without fire-places in the bedrooms, these houses have far fewer chimney pots than the original house.
These houses were pebble-dashed instead of being roughcast and, in some cases, the pebble-dashing has not worn very well. Pre-fabricated bungalows were built on the Holderness House Paddock after the static water tank was removed. They were the aluminium type and were said to suffer from condensation. When they were built, the Paddock was still owned by the Holderness House Trustees. The Garden Village Company continued until Sir Philip Reckitt had died in and his two daughters were now the controlling shareholders of the Company.
Because of inflation, house maintenance was becoming expensive but the rents were controlled at prices with a small percentage increase. Sir Philip Reckitt's daughters, Mrs Barbara Pollock and Mrs Elizabeth Holt, were probably influenced by their husbands when they decided to give the tenants the opportunity to buy their houses at low tenanted possession prices.
The scheme was initiated by Colonel V. There was a good response and many tenants wished to buy their houses at the assessed tenanted possession prices, which were considerably lower than vacant possession prices.
Whilst the necessary arrangements were being made, the Bradford Property Trust made an offer for the whole of the Garden Village properties, comprising houses, flats and shops. Ultimately their offer was accepted, but only on the condition that they would honour the arrangements for the sale of the houses to tenants who had agreed to buy. This was carried out by the Bradford Property Trust.
Some tenants had not been able to accept the offer to buy their houses and some had been able to buy but had preferred to remain tenants as the rents were cheap. In later years, when the rents were increased, some of these tenants regretted their decision not to buy. Some resented that their neighbours had become home owners and they had not.
The Bradford Property Trust. Subject to suitable restrictions and safeguards as to their future use, they were offered to the Corporation without any cash consideration. The Parks, Recreation Grounds and General Purposes Sub-Committee resolved that the Corporation agree in principle to the taking over of these two plots of land, but before entering into any agreement with the Bradford Property Trust Ltd, the Town Clerk report to the Committee on the conditions relating to the use of the land.
He stated that the Bradford Property Trust also offered the Corporation six additional small plots of land on the same terms and that he had received a request that the Corporation pay the Trust's legal costs in connection with the matter.
One of these small pieces of land was a circular island in the middle of the road at the junction of Lilac Avenue and Maytree Avenue. The Corporation removed this island and tarmacked over it, making a wider junction. Some Maytree Avenue residents felt that the Corporation had not acted in accordance with the spirit of the agreement made with the Bradford Property Trust.
Hull City Police Boys Club. The Club House had been leased to the Hull City Police Boys Club for a peppercorn rent provided that they kept the building in good repair. In , a large extension was built at the back of the Club House. The rear wall of the billiard room was removed and a large gymnasium was added to this room. The former billiard room then became a stage where a boxing ring was placed. When boxing matches were held, rows of seats were placed in the gymnasium.
Archbishop William Temple School. Many Hull Church of England school buildings had been destroyed during the war. Peter's Church School, Drypool, had been in use but some had closed before the war. The war damage compensation from these bombed buildings was used to build a new school on the Education Committee's recreation ground in Westcott Street. Archbishop William Temple School opened in and it was for children aged five to eleven.
Although some of the money for its building was compensation from Drypool's St. It became a popular school and was not large enough to accommodate all the children whose parents applied for them to attend. Many children living nearby had to attend other schools.
The school only occupied part of the recreation ground site and Mersey Street School continued to use the field for games. Building materials became less scarce and although the City Corporation concentrated on building council houses, eventually consent was given for some private houses to be built. They wished to extend the Acacia Drive estate when the prefabs were demolished but the Holderness House Trustees sold this land to a builder, Stan Spruit.
After some delay in getting planning permission, Stan Spruit built 20 semi-detached houses in Village Road in These houses were probably the first new private houses to be built in Hull after the war. The site of the Village Hall remained vacant until Seven bungalows were built on the site and they were completed in Five privately owned bungalows were built here in and North Lodge, which was originally in the Holderness House grounds, was now outside the grounds.
Two of the shops in the Shopping Centre became vacant and the Bradford Property Trust converted them into flats in and The remaining four shops were then a hairdressers, a grocers, the Public Library and a post office which sold newspapers and sweets.
The rebuilding of St. The bombed church was not rebuilt for many years and three vicars were involved in the rebuilding plans; Canon E. Berry, who left in , Canon C. Forder, who served until , and Rev. Hull Corporation planned to make Holderness Road a dual carriageway and so the building line near the bombed church was set back another 20 feet. Because of this, St. Columba's Church could not be rebuilt the same as it was at the expense of the War Damage Commission. Children at Archbishop William Temple School donated money and some, who had given half a crown, went to the site on a Saturday morning and laid a brick.
The old church was not completely demolished. Some walls at the Holderness Road end remain to half their height, as do the pillars in the front half of the nave. The building now has two foundation stones laid by the same person, one by remote control and one personally. The mural on the east wall was painted by Robert Hendra and Geoffrey Harper. They were also responsible for the stained glass windows.
In the west window, a large figure of St. Columba is shown standing on an island. The seven windows in the side chapel represent; St. The pitch pine pews had originally been installed in St. Clement's Church, Salford and they provided seating for over people in the nave.
The organ was a complete rebuild of the organ that used to be in St. At the time, there was expectation that electricity would become cheap as a result of it being produced by nuclear power. Electric under floor heating was installed. This was not a success. It was very expensive and, after a few years, sections of it were not working after wires broke as a result of movement between the slabs of Bison interlocking flooring.
However, the Church was well heated when it was first installed. As the Church was not rebuilt on exactly the same site, it was regarded as a new Church and was consecrated by Archbishop Ramsey in September The Church Hall reverted to being a church hall and the ex army hut, known as the Dalton Hall, was used by the Sunday School and uniformed organisations.
After the electric heating failed, gas heaters were used for a time but later a Pressuraire heater blowing warm air into the Church was installed.
The pews were taken out, carpets fitted and comfortable chairs installed when the Church was reordered in Before the Church was rebuilt in , the grounds extended up to the Holderness Road pavement but the land needed for the dualling of Holderness Road was later sold to the Corporation and is now an amenity garden area. A shelter with a seat in it was erected on the corner.
Plans to dual Holderness Road were later scrapped. The shelter on the corner was removed after complaints against the youths who congregated there. Alterations to Holderness House. The Holderness House Trustees used the money from the sale of pieces of land to build an extension to Holderness House. This was designed by the architect, Bernard Blanchard, in , before Holderness House became a listed building.
Some tall chimney pots on Holderness House were removed during the s. Many people were sorry to see these twisty chimney pots go. After Holderness House became a listed building, the Planning Department agreed to the architect's request to remove some tall chimney-stacks on the Holderness Road side without an application for listed building consent being made.
The Holderness House fence continued to deteriorate. It seems that the Trustees were more interested in expanding the accommodation than maintaining the existing property. The Garden Village Conservation Area. The Civic Amenities Act was made in but many local planning authorities were slow to apply for conservation area designation. The Minister of Housing and Local Government wrote to local authorities and, at a meeting of the Planning Sub-Committee on 5th February , the Town Planning Officer reported that it was necessary to inform the Minister of Housing and Local Government of probable conservation areas and thereafter, if considered necessary, to consider the constitution of a Conservation Area Advisory Committee as suggested by the Minister.
The Planning Department then drew up plans showing the boundaries of three probable conservation areas and, at the meeting of the Planning Sub-Committee on 30 April , it was resolved: Charterhouse and the Masters House, Charterhouse Lane.
It would seem that plans for conservation areas would not have been drawn up if the Minister had not required it. At the meeting of the Town Planning Committee on 15 May , Alderman Alec-Smith moved an amendment that the whole of the Old Town, the Town Docks, such warehouses in the Town Docks area as are listed as buildings of special architectural or historic interest, and the Queens Gardens should be included in a conservation area.
This amendment was lost and the boundaries of the proposed conservation areas were not changed. Conservative gains in the elections in May resulted in the Conservatives gaining control of the Council and Alderman Alec-Smith was appointed chairman of the Planning Committee.
He was keen on the preservation of buildings and started making plans on how the conservation areas would be enhanced when they were designated. He was keen that an Article 4 Direction be made for the Garden Village so that alterations to windows and the building of porches would require planning consent.
There was also talk of the street lights being replaced with a Victorian style but with electric lights in them. Alderman Alec-Smith was very keen that the Old Number 7 warehouse in Castle Street should be preserved but he was out of step with his party on this.
He was replaced as the leader of the Council. In May , the Conservatives were still in control of the Council. An official from the Ministry of Housing and Local Government met the Planning Sub-Committee on 10 th June and then viewed the three proposed conservation areas.
It would seem that the Whitefriargate and Charterhouse proposed conservation areas were not considered good enough as, on 15th October , only the Garden Village Conservation Area was designated by the Secretary of State.
Nothing was done to formulate plans to enhance the Conservation Area and an Advisory Committee was not formed. It would seem that other council members were not as keen on conservation as Alderman Alec-Smith. These were listed grade II in The Founding of the Garden Village Society. In August , the City Council published a planning application to build houses and bungalows in Acacia Drive after the demolition of the pre-fabs. Many local people were concerned about this as, although the area had been designated as a conservation area, the plans made no concessions to this and the dwellings were like others being erected by the Council.
A post and rail fence was proposed along the Laburnum Avenue frontage. Local people got together, the Garden Village Preservation Society was formed and a petition was sent in to the Council. The plans were amended and some concessions were made. One block of two-storey houses was taken out and replaced with four bungalows, the colour of the bricks and roof tiles was changed and the proposed post and rail fence along the Laburnum Avenue frontage was replaced with a privet hedge.
At its first Annual General Meeting in St. Columba's Dalton Hall on 18th May , when people were present, the name of the Society was changed to Garden Village Society as its aims were not solely preservation. The Land between 8 and 10 Maple Grove. One of the people present at that meeting was Mr W.
Hodgkinson of 25 Aberdeen Street who was interested in an outline planning application to build on the land between 8 and 10 Maple Grove. Mr Filburn had recently died and his executors intended to put the house and the land up for sale at an auction with outline planning permission for the development of the land. The meeting discussed this land and it was thought to be not wide enough for a pair of semi-detached houses.
Mr Hodgkinson said that he thought a bungalow would look very nice on the land. In representations to the Planning Department, the Garden Village Society stated that only one detached dwelling should be built on the land. Outline planning permission for a detached dwelling was granted. At the auction at Dunnings in Beverley in October , the land between 8 and 10 Maple Grove, and behind 4, 6 and 8, was bought by Mr W.
Hodgkinson, who paid a high price, outbidding a local doctor and several builders. Mr Hodgkinson used the land for storing collected materials and did not immediately submit detailed plans. His bungalow was not built until about twelve years later. A large concrete base was laid in , shortly before the second planning consent would have elapsed and the bungalow was completed in Mrs Hodgkinson paid for a modern kitchen to be installed.
For about ten years, the bungalow was not occupied and, in , the City Council started procedures to compulsorily purchase it as a vacant property. Mr Hodgkinson then decided to live at the bungalow. Harris, a nephew of Mr Hodgkinson, cleared out the bungalow and decorated it. After carpets were laid, Mr Harris and Mr Hodgkinson went to live there. Mr Hodgkinson's wife was in hospital. Mrs Hodgkinson died on 27th June Her body was brought to the bungalow and, at her funeral on 7th July , she was interred in the back garden by undertakers.
Mr Hodgkinson continued collecting things, especially after the death of Mrs Atkinson's mother. Complaints were made to the Council and Mr Hodgkinson was asked to clear the garden. Hodgkinson died on 26 th December A large amount of material was then cleared from the front garden, from inside the bungalow and around Mrs Hodgkinson's grave. Mr Hodgkinson's funeral service was held at St.
Michael's church, Skidby, on 12 th January and this was followed by his interment at 8A Maple Grove. The closure of the Garden Village Post Office. The Garden Village Post Office closed in The Government policy was to reduce the number of sub post offices and concentrate post office business in the Crown Post Offices. Garden Village residents were opposed to the plan to close the Post Office and many sent letters of objection.
Mrs Evelyn Grange worked tirelessly collecting signatures for a petition and County Councillor Mrs Sue Sallinger also opposed the closure. These protests were of no avail; the Post Office closed and Mr and Mrs Stevens, who had run it for many years, left the premises. Since the Post Office closed, the shop has been used for other businesses but none have been successful. The closure of the Post Office affected trade at the shop next to the archway at 4 The Shopping Centre and, eventually, it also became vacant.
In , the Bradford Property Trust applied for planning permission to change the vacant shops at 4 and 6 The Shopping Centre into flats. This was granted and the work was later carried out after the Shopping centre had been sold to Midas Homes. The closure of Archbishop William Temple School.
Archbishop William Temple School was originally for children aged 5 to 11 and there was just one classroom for each year. In , a schools reorganisation was carried out by the City Council and Junior High Schools for children aged 9 to 12 were formed. Archbishop William Temple School became a Primary School for children aged 5 to 8 and classes were held in the Hall and the entrance to accommodate the increased number of children forming two classes for each year.
Requests to the Education Authority to build extra classrooms were refused. The school was oversubscribed and grandmothers often called to register a child as a future pupil on the day of the birth.
In , the County Council decided to scrap Junior High Schools and revert to 5 to 11 primary schools and 11 to 16 secondary schools in There was much opposition to this but the plan was approved by the Government. Mersey Street parents objected to the closure of their school and, eventually, this school was given a reprieve, the Mersey Junior High School buildings were demolished, a playing field made and an extension built for the Primary School.
A large extension was built at the Westcott Street School so that it could be an open plan school taking an increased number of children. Some temporary classrooms were installed while the building work was being done and the noise and dust would have been considered unacceptable in many work places. In , when the reorganisation took place, few children transferred from Mersey Primary School to Westcott Street, Many parents preferred their child to remain at the Westcott Street School rather than travel further to Alderman Cogan and many Alderman Cogan children came from the catchment areas of Southcoates and Flinton Primary Schools.
The Education Committee paid for extensive alterations to the Mersey Street, Westcott Street and Hopewell Road schools but educational standards do not seem to have improved as a result and despite having a Church of England Senior High School, Church of England influence on local education has been reduced as a result of losing Archbishop William Temple School.
The demise of the Foredyke Stream and Lambwath Stream. The City Council obtained an Act of Parliament giving them the power to fill in some open drains. With the extra flow, it became a wider, deeper, stretch of water.
Bricks and pieces of concrete were used and no pipes were laid. It was said that, if this resulted in drainage problems, these would be rectified. Reckitt's Recreation Ground and the land where Dunscombe Park was later built were badly affected by the filling in of the Lambwath Stream and a pipe had to be laid to rectify this. These open drains were an attractive feature of the local landscape and nature lovers were sorry to see them go.
With the loss of the open drains, the height of the water table under the Garden Village has varied more seasonally and this seems to have increased the number of houses experiencing subsidence problems. After the war, the gas lights were replaced with electric lights. The lamp standards were curved at the top and were painted green. It would seem that they were never repainted and many started to rust at the bottom.
Later, the filament lights in the Conservation Area were replaced with fluorescent lights, which showed up colours much better than the sodium lights used on most roads.
Because of neglect of maintenance, the rusting lamp standards had to be replaced. This was done in The new lamp standards, painted green, were sited differently from the old ones and a higher standard of illumination resulted. A new clock was installed at the Shopping Centre after the war. It had no striking mechanism. After a few years, the clock stopped and it did not work for about 12 years.
In July , the clock was repaired by members of the Garden Village Society and has now been wound weekly by a team of clock-winders for more than 30 years.
After Mount Pleasant was completed in , some heavy goods vehicles were still using Laburnum Avenue. This weight limit area did not include James Reckitt Avenue, which continued to be used by heavy vehicles.
They were told that the police had objected to this as it would be difficult to enforce. The Garden Village Society persisted and, eventually, the 7. Garden Village Environmental Improvements.
