Jeanette Weedon (née Phillips) writes: The properties “Gages” and “Westhaven” (the semi-detached houses adjacent to ... Myrtle Cottage) were built in 1946/47 by my grandfather, Sidney Phillips, for himself and his son, also Sidney Phillips. “Westhaven” at this time was called “Philomel”. My grandfather lived at Philomel until 1964. My aunt and uncle continued to live at “The Gages” until their demise in 1997 and 1987 respectively. My cousin, Avril Baldwin, who sent me the picture, lived at the Gages with her parents throughout her childhood and adolescent years.
