Looking clean and smart with new ground floor shutters.

Note the absence of chimney stacks at the rear of the house. All four were unsafe but being in a conservation area the front two had to be reinstated.

New sides to the steps with rails and a smart new sign.

The name Yorkleigh was reintroduced at this time inline with the fashion for a group name.

It was still very cold and uninviting but an improvement on the previous room

THE FINISHED BUILDING


The building is complete allowing the surgery to continue its work helping those in medical need from day to day. Thanks to the decision of our landlady, Mrs Ridley, to sell and enable us to purchase the property we were able to bring the services up to modern standards and which continue to be in use over 25 years later.
