Probably the most significant building in the lane is this coach house, from whose upper floor George Dowty started his engineering business in 1931 … it even has a little blue plaque.

In commemoration of the Dowty Family, who lived at Rembrandt House (now Persora) in Pershore High Street, George Dowty, the grandson of William Dowty, unveiled a Pershore Civic Society Blue Plaque on Sunday 19th November 2017. Both William Dowty (1856 – 1913), chemist, and his son Sir George Dowty (1901 – 1975) were pioneers of photography and aeronautics respectively
