White Horse View, Westbury, Road Naming

Barratt’s White Horse View in Westbury has been chosen as the perfect setting for honouring the life achievements of a local man.  Former head teacher Nigel Gilhespy passed away from a brain tumour in 2006, but not before helping to provide local children with the best possible education, no matter what their ability or background.  One of these pupils was local man Radek Evans, who campaigned to have one of the development’s roads named after his former headmaster.  He collected 3,000 signatures and was able to overturn a statement from the local authority, that roads could only be named after someone who was dead for longer than a century.  According to Mr Gilhespy’s wife Elaine, he liked to do things his way – so Gilespy Way was the most popular choice.
