Springfield Nursery

From Historical Hastings Wiki

The Springfield Nursery was located at the lower end of Paul's Field at the junction of Old London Road and Ashburnham Road from 1873 mapping[1]. The nursery was run by a Messrs Gilbert and Barham in 1866[2], later becoming just Thomas Gilbert by 1871[3] until 1896, when the property on the nursery was sold at auction to a Mr Blackman[4] By 1897, the nursery has disappeared from mapping, being replaced by an access track and surrounded by properties on both sides.[5]
