    The cottage believed to be in Wingfield, I do not recognise it but on the road from Wingfield to Tebworth after costins farm there is a bend in the road to the right, the next property being the white house. On that bend set back from the road was a wooden bungalow. I was told that this bungalow was build after a lone German bomer after a raid on Luton/Dunstable jetisoned his bombs demolishing a cottage that previously stood there. I have no idea of the truth of the story but believe that the person who told me this was not known to make up stories, also of course at the time it would have been easy to check with others who lived there through the war years. Hope this helps your historian.

      I seem to remember that the Ludgates lived in the bungalow and then a Mr & Mrs Melton lived next to them towards Tebworth. At the back of Mr Melton I think there were some ruins. I never actually saw them but was told about them. Wonder if this has any significance???

    Hi David,

    I believe There were a line of cottages end on to the Tebworth road which were hit.

    Hi, Norman

    Where were these cottages exactly? if you know? I don’t remember any signs of them from when we where young, and we walked that road a lot of times.
    On a personal note nice to hear from you after all thes years.
