Col. Charles Winfred Brannon lived at Brannon House in the late twenties and thirties and moved to Tenth House in New Road in 1934. He was Scout Master of the Wootton Sea Scouts who were based in a wooden building on the Fishbourne side of the Creek. The boats were kept at Tenth House.

During the last war Saunders Roe transferred some of their mainland works to their East Cowes site and rented every available large house for their staff. Brannon House was among those they rented.

The house is now divided into flats.

Dingley Dell

Now stands on the site of the old coach house and the stables.

A charming cottage-style bungalow set in an attractive mature plot located at 122 Station Road. The bungalow is approached over a gravelled drive with a wooden five-bar gate. This leads through the mainly lawned mature gardens with shrubs and trees to the garage, which has double opening wooden doors and cobbled flooring.
