Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the 1850s, with land used mainly for farming and market gardening. Population was minimal until the 1880s, spurred by the opening of the railway line. Significant development took place from the late 1940s to the 1980s, as market gardens were replaced by housing. The population fluctuated slightly from the early 1990s, a result of small changes in dwelling stock and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
