Our HISTORY

Before 42b High Street Rayleigh became 'The Ruby Hair Room' this listed building was home to clothing store, a Singer Sewing machine shop and even a grocers. The building itself has been a feature of Rayleigh High street for nearly 150 years. The wooden beams holding the building together originally came from a retired ship and evidence of the unique origins and age of the building are featured  into the  character of the ‘The Ruby Hair Room’. 42b High Street Rayleigh is a part of Rayleigh’s historical conservation program.

 

BUILDING History


In the first image the building can just be seen at the centre of the image. This is oldest recorded photograph of the building.
But it wasn’t always seen as a historical landmark. In the latter part of the 1970’s it was the centre of much controversy when an application was made to demolish it. The Council of the day voted 20 to 1 to allow the application but the County Council and various amenity organisations including the Civic Society wanted to see it restored. Luckily with the aid of a grant it was restored in 1971/72. It had a rather unusual roof truss but its main attraction was its appearance and prominent position in the Town Centre.

The photo below was taken in the late 1950’s shows the building as ‘Manns Grocers’. Notice the minor structural differences to today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The decision to restore this building was probably the turning point in the fight to retain old buildings in the High Street. Up to this time the policy had been to demolish the old and develop the sites with box-like buildings which were the vogue in the 1960's and 70's. To actually set about restoring an old building was a long overdue change in policy and a very welcome one.
A Town Map is on the wall of Mann’s facing the Millennium Clock (which was erected in 1999 and has a time capsule beneath it scheduled to be opened in the year 2050).

 

42b High Street Rayleigh features in most of the towns historical photos from the past 100 years.
