Bubbenhall Village

The New Development

With the availablity of suitable land at the beginning of the Seventies, Bubbenhall's first housing estate, Waggoner's Close/ Coopers' Walk, was built, thereby starting the large-scale process of overlaying the medieval village pattern of buildings and their adjoining closes, which had made up the middle of the parish for so many centuries. A comparison between maps of the village pre and post the development of Bryant's Estate shows this clearly.
