Bubbenhall Village

The Bottom End

The period from the break-up of the old Baginton Estate in 1918, to 1960 - between the wars and in the immediate post-war period - saw the building of the Council houses at the Bottom End. By 1945 at the bottom of the village, opposite the Moat, were more empty, broken-down cottages, which were eventually demolished. When the sewerage scheme was completed in 1965, work was already underway on building fourteen new houses and four old people's bungalows near The Moat at the Bottom End.

The Moat

The Moat was probably originally the Home Farm. Later the Home Farm was present-day Top House, i.e. Kathleen Grimes' house and the Grimes family's main farm in Bubbenhall.
