79 Hinton Avenue (formerly 1 ?)

History of 79 Hinton Avenue

The historical numbering and naming of the houses in Hinton Avenue is a little unclear at this point. There were six original terraced cottages number 1-6, but the modern numbering goes from 69-79. 79 was also called Meads End which suggests that it was not one of the original cottages but there is no other candidate for the original no.1!
