The following information comes from Dr Ron and Mrs Elaine (nee Bunker) Emmerson:
"Leigham Manor was owned by the Bunker family, as were several
other properties by the River Plym at Marsh Mills, now part of
Plymouth. Leigham was set in 30 acres with prime pasture and fishing rights. It also had two adjoining small cottages that were used for a gardener and a caretaker, and a lodge at the entrance to the drive from Forder Valley Road. The drive was lined with beautiful rhododendrons and azaleas and there was also a tennis court. It was given for the use of the South England Conference for its Youth Camp in 1947. Several romances started at Leigham Manor that summer ending in marriage. One was that of Dr and Mrs A Jackson
(Mrs Jackson - formerly Hilary Mason). The Bunker families were all members of the Plymouth church. The Admiralty rented Leigham Manor as a hospital during the war years, and it was run by naval nursing staff. Leigham Manor lodge was let to an Adventist family called Whiting during this period. After the war Leigham Manor was sold to an engineering firm, Tecalemit, who had built a factory in the valley. They converted Leigham Manor into flats for their executives. We understand it was later sold to a developer when Tecalemit moved to Estover, another part of Plymouth. The other properties were compulsorily purchased by the Plymouth City Council of the time after the war, with the intention of big industrial development and riverside walks etc in the area. This however, to our knowledge, has never taken place to this day! The Bunker families moved to Tavistock in 1949 where the new generation grew up, including Elaine and her sister Elizabeth, who were Glen's children, and their four cousins, Eric
and Ken's children. The Whiting family who were in Leigham Manor lodge were rehoused in the lodge at Tavistock for several years."
