Type and Period (1)
Contemporary records state, “H. G. Ammunition Shelter. Adj. garden ground, Tower Road, Wivenhoe”. The owner is given as Mrs. M. Frostick, Wayside, Tower Road, Wivenhoe.<1>
“Wayside” still survives as No.15 Tower Road. An aerial photograph taken in 1946 shows the house surrounded by large gardens with several identifiable features, one of which was probably this Home Guard ammunition shelter. In 2007, the major part of these gardens have been re-developed with houses now standing both N and S of the house.<2>
