Then & Now: The cedar tree that survives from a scene more than 100 years ago

Pictured above is Church Hill, Loughton, c1904 showing two cedar trees that once stood in the front garden of a large house called ‘Uplands’ that was demolished two years earlier to make way for a new housing development.

Uplands Park Avenue (now The Uplands) was laid out on the right, and one of its famous residents was architect, Sir Frank Baines (1877-1933) who lived for a time at Hillside Cottage.

He was much respected for his work on the conservation and preservation of old buildings.

On the left is part of the Kings Head Pub (now a restaurant).

One of the cedar trees still survives today.
