     School Close is Rebuilt 2016

School Close was a postwar development and part of the expansion of the village which took place at that time. However, sometimes buildings need to be renewed and move on. So in 2016 most of the buildings in the street were demolished and new ones built.
Mike Fuller from the Ludham Archive was there with his camera to record the changes. Here we see a little bit of Ludham being transformed.
