Connaught Avenue Elm Trees

Before Connaught Avenue was extended in the 1930’s and joined to the southern end “elm trees up to four feet in diameter stood in the middle of the road above Colvill Avenue up to the bend. You could walk either side of them.” (Nora Snelling, nee Hatcher, Connaught Avenue resident b.1910)

Photo the elm trees c.1939 shortly before being felled.
If you’d tried motoring up Erringham Road you’d have had a job too!
