A bit of history: At the beginning of the 20th century, Homesteads Ltd of the Strand in London bought the estate of `Ramsden Hall` along with part of the `Ramsden Park` estate, and the village of Ramsden Bellhouse as we know it now, was born.
It was originally built as a `bungalow estate` with only a few detached houses dotted here and there. There were several different optional designs - I have a few prints of the original flyers which make interesting reading - with prices from £275!!
Many of the houses you see now in the village started life as these bungalows and have been greatly extended out of all recognition, although a few retain the angled front room, which helps identify them.
Most of the plots were an acre, but some buyers bought two or more to create Smallholdings, hence why there are a real mixture of plot sizes throughout the village.
