Hi I have an address for my parents having lived at The Mount Taymount Rise in 1955. I understand that this address no longer exists, I would really appreciate it if anyone could shed any light! Thank you.

My understanding is that the block called Forest Croft (built in the late '20s, early '30s I think) is now built on the site of the house what was The Mount at the top of Taymount Rise.

The existing 'pillar' at the entrance to the driveway might well be contemporary with the Mount.

Thank you for your reply, yes that is pretty much what I understand too. I'm still confused though as to how my parents could have had the address The Mount in 1955.

We have some old areal photography of the Taymount Grange during construction which might be of interest, is this house your discussing?
