The history of Heath House Conference Centre is fascinating. Amongst the people who are believed to have lived at Heath House was the pottery manufacturer; Arthur George Harley-Jones.
A charming newspaper report from May 1914 suggests that his children owned a ‘blue Andalusian fowl’. The chicken produced an incredible egg. It was 5 inches long and contained three yolks. The egg weighed six ounces! It is wonderful to get this glimpse into the lives of the people who lived here.
Another notable resident was Councillor William Clarke. The councillor was forcibly evicted from his home in the 1950’s.
Councillor Clarke spent the first few nights in a caravan after he was evicted. Subsequently, he then lived in a red Elke’s double decker bus on the site of Barlow’s scrap yard. The scrap yard was opposite to where McDonalds is now located.
Following the eviction, Councillor Clarke’s family set sail for America and the building became a clinic. Many people remember visiting Heath House to have their babies weighed.
