Melford Road 20-22 Orford and Aldeburgh Villas


A pair of substantial late Victorian villas built by Clement Dennington - No 22, Orford House, on the left for his own occupation. On the night of March 1916 No 22 was hit by an incendiary bomb dropped by Zeppelin L14. The fire trapped Rifleman Bond sleeping in his bedroom. He was rescued from the blaze by his Sergeant, Charles May, an act for which he later received the Military Medal.
