New housing development in Hungerford named in honour of heroic World War 2 bomber crew

13 Jan 2021

The historic market town of Hungerford is set to benefit from an impressive new collection of homes thanks to an exciting new development from Bewley Homes.

Surrounded by countryside, Lancaster Park, off Salisbury Road, is a collection of 100 new 3,4, and 5 bedroom homes set south of the main town which will also boast a dedicated landscaped open space and play areas for residents.

The name of the development pays tribute to the heroic actions of a Lancaster bomber crew, who crashed at night attempting to land at nearby Welford Airfield in 1944 after a daring secret mission.

Bewley Homes’ team has been designing and building beautiful, high quality, homes for more nearly 30 years. For Lancaster Park, the house types fit in perfectly with the local character. The show home is due to launch on Saturday 23 and 24 January.

Elaine Stratford, sales and marketing director at Bewley Homes, said: “We believe we have found a fantastic location to build homes in Hungerford. This lovely market town has so much to offer – great schools, superb amenities and is located in a wonderful part of the country.

“We always try to find a local historical reference point when naming our developments and Lancaster Park has a very poignant one with the World War 2 celebrations last year. We wanted to pay tribute to those brave men who died during that important secret mission, and are naming this beautiful new development and community in their honour.”

Elaine added: “We are offering a very special, quality product for all customers – first time buyers, second steppers, families, all the way to downsizers – with a range of quality homes in different sizes and styles. Families, in particular, will love Lancaster Park, thanks to its picturesque surroundings, open spaces and an attractive children’s play area.”

The construction of Lancaster Park will see links to existing footpaths through the site – with a range of services and facilities within a comfortable walking distance.

Local residents in Hungerford are also set to benefit, with Bewley Homes contributing more than £1 million for community infrastructure projects and £68,000 towards local open space.
