By 1960, the district was turned around as it had several developmental projects ongoing and completed. However, St. Thomas Church stood out. The church was constructed for other estates in the municipality. The estates were built after the second World War ended. The estates were constructed through the combined efforts of the residents.

The church, St. Thomas, was built on a vast expanse of land. It is located between the intersection of Sheldon Heath Road and Garretts Green Lane, beside Chestnut’s large house.
