Proposed housing development next to the Churchyard

The date of this plan is not certain, but it would appear that at some point there was a plan to build houses alongside the current open part of the church graveyard, on land that is now part of Rawlins School. The new part of the churchyard was purchased in 1902 and consecrated in 1933, so the plan must date to the first half of the 1900s. Official planning permission was not required until the 1947 Town and country Planning Act came into force.

It is not known who produced the proposal, but it obviously never came to fruition.
