An earlier post of mine showed the details of the sale of land in Chapel Road in 1902. It seems Stebbings were not involved in acquiring any new land at that time, but they did purchase land on Chapel Road in 1919.

The area of land purchased wasn’t developed all at once, and in 1929 the portion of the site furthest from the river was transferred from being owned by the business to being owned by part of the family for the building of a house. This dwelling was originally named Cupola. It’s still there today but has been renamed Walnut Tree House. Cupola was sold by the family in 1949.

The photos below are of Crystal’s in various stages of fitting out. I’m not sure if this work was done at the Chapel Road yard, or elsewhere.
