Wyndward, no.63 Jail Lane, Biggin Hill.

The first phase of Biggin Hill's development took place in the early 1920s, when the Aperfield Court Estate was sold off in £10 building plots. These were built on in individual styles, often using light and flimsy materials.

By the second part of the 20th century many had fallen into disrepair and were bought, demolished and rebuilt by developers.

It was not until the 1950s that house numbers started to replace house names as the primary means of identification. Some of the house names reflect the pioneering nature of the first developers.
