The Old Progress Estate Office in Downham Road

Ian Skinner (of Bernard Skinner Estate Agents) recently supplied these photos to the site.

They depict the old Estate Office in Downman Road in 1978. The estate manager had his office in this building and residents paid their rent here. Apparently there was also joinery repair workshop on the first floor where the the estate maintenance team would have carried out repairs to gates, fences and the like.

When the estate office became 'surplus to requirements' it was sold for conversion into the present-day flats.
