Byron Parade took its name from the poet who was an occasional visitor to High House when his friend, a Major Howard who died at Waterloo, lived here. After High House and its cedar tree were pulled down in September 193 the site, with its 300-foot frontage on Corbets Tey Road, was developed into the shops and flats of Byron Parade, pictured on the early 1950s.
