44 years have lapsed...there is only one active farm in the main village village and 63 new houses have been built ( or are under construction, on sites that were formerly farm buildings or businesses..Whitelands Farm, Horsley Transport Yard).
At least 3 houses have been demolished ( Village Farm, Manor Farm and Meadow Croft) and some farm buildings have been converted into houses ( Whitelands Barn, Ash Close, Derwent Farm)
Beyond the village centre, farm buildings have been converted into houses at Newton Lodge and Eastfield Farm.
There are semi-permanent lodges on a site down Bull Balk and just beyond the Parish boundary, there are mobile homes and caravans at One Hundred Oaks, caravan and fishing lakes.
