17 Chesfield Road

17 Chesfield Road
Number 17 being the left hand part of the semi, pictured in September 2008. This splendid Edwardian house, which goes back a long way and also has a long garden, was occupied by Charles Albert Duff (fourth son of Robert James) and his wife Alice Maud (neé Babbage) sometime before the Second World War (date still to be researched) until Charles' death in 1972. Upon his death it was sold by his nephews Albert Edward and Kenneth Arthur (sons of Albert Duff) to a local builder who converted it into two flats. Judging by the similar curtains on both floors and only a single doorbell, by 2008 it had been converted back into a house, which is a just outcome for what is a lovely sizeable family home.
