Dares the Builders

Hi vivienne14 this is a great post for me as the photo of the pair of houses in the advert is of 555 Shirley road which I owned in the 1980s.I completely gutted the place including all the Windows which I replaced in cottage style including Bullions, l then rendered all the exterior and built the porch that is still there I see.these houses were really well built and gave very little in the way of problems. Regards Acklam19.

Two roads in Yardley appear to have been named after members of the Dare family.
