Highfield Road

1967 was a time of great change in Biggin Hill. many houses were built and Highfield Road was no exception. Once it was just a track that ran along the opposite side of the Valley but this is when it changed beyond recognition. This photograph shows the row of houses on the right of Highfield Road under construction - only a few had been built. But when they were completed they had a commanding view across to Main Road.

As the Now photo shows the development continued across the road, the road still leads to Beech Road and a couple of the trees still stand (the layout of the branches can clearly be seen in both photos).
