History

Reakes Grove (formerly Elm Street) was named in honour of centenarian local artist Filbert Reakes, who lived in the area and recorded Foulkes Village's changing face in a series of celebrated oil paintings - the last of which can be seen to the left.

Although pleasantly green in its heyday, when the elm trees flourished and local residents tended their gardens with loving care, Reakes Grove lay directly downwind from the Fyfhyde Ironworks, and Paget Auto Repair, and was overshadowed by the local aeronautical engineering works. Its name was therefore doubly appropriate, and house prices plummeted as the reek of the Village's industrialisation intensified.

Reakes was one of a handful of long-term inhabitants still resident when the apocalypse took hold. He was said to be at his easel when a zombie broke into his house and gouged the artist's eyes out with an 8H pencil. Reakes' brains and blood were found smeared and spattered over a nearby canvas: he was artistic to the end.
