WITHAM, COMMERCIAL AREAS (NEWLAND STREET AREA ONLY) IN 1984
Survey carried out by Janet Gyford

Other posts have similar surveys for 1969, 1979, 1989, 1995-6, and from 2000 onwards.

Some residential property is included as well if it is intermingled with commercial property

In many cases, where there is an address combining several numbers (e.g. 23-27), the individual addresses are written out afterwards in brackets. This is so that a search for one of the individual addresses might find it. This has not been done for long series of residential numbers.

For the same reason, addresses with a, b etc. in the number have the main number in brackets afterwards, e.g. 5a Newland Street (part of 5 Newland Street).
