In honour of Remembrance Day, our Sales and Marketing Director Philip Brown discusses how we are remembering one particular fallen solider in a very special way this year…
Remembrance Day is always a time to reflect and pay tribute to the fallen servicemen and women that have fought for our country over the years. Now, 75 years since the end of World War II, at Millwood we are especially taking the time to reflect and particularly remember one special young man, Edward Manton. Buried in the village of Hawkhurst, Kent, Edward Manton was a Spitfire fighter pilot and ex-postman who was thrown into the war at a young age. He tragically lost his life at 25 years old when his plane who shot down in the Battle of Britain in Hurst Green, just down the road from our upcoming development Heartenoak Meadows.
To commemorate Edward’s bravery and efforts at battle, earlier this year we took the decision to name one of the roads at Heartenoak Meadows after him. ‘Manton Crescent’ will be situated to the entrance of the development, and will forever pay tribute to the memory of the brave young fighter, one of many lives lost too soon.
Our new homes at Heartenoak Meadows will offer 18 exclusive two to five bedroom homes, within walking distance to the centre of Hawkhurst Village. Steeped in history itself, the village is home to a historic high street where you’ll find local cafes and pubs such as Waterside Café, and a range of amenities full of local friendly faces. Perfect for all varieties of buyers, our fantastic architects have designed the development to perfectly incorporate the picturesque countryside backdrop of Hawkhurst.
Heartenoak Meadows is surrounded by a colonnade of greenspace, with the breath-taking landscapes of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and tranquillity of Flimwell Park just 5 minutes from Hawkhurst, perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who love to venture out on idyllic autumnal walks.
