Northlands House on Northlands Road was built in 1880 on land that had formerly been part of Banister Court estate. It was built for Arthur James Day of the local shipbuilding firm, Day Summers and Co. In the 1930s it was converted into a nursing home, and after the war it became a home for the elderly, a purpose for which it used until 2003 when it was demolished.
