History

Situated in Stanbury Village's most affluent area, Tom's Road took its name from Sir Thomas, Lord Wymbourne, who resided here while 'in town' until his death in 2005. Lord Wymbourne was a patron of the arts, and after a career in architecture and conservation (he founded Stanbury Heritage), he gave considerable financial support to the Batson Museum, Brome Library and other local institutions.

'Old Tom' and his Austin Mayfair were icons of Stanbury Society, and he was much-loved by both rich and poor. Known for his charitable nature, Wymbourne discreetly invited many of his humbler fellow Stanburyites to dinner at his residence, and secretly donated thousands of pounds to the poor: a fact which went unrevealed until his demise, when the donations came to a halt. He was particularly generous to young women, and frequently visited women's prisons, colleges of nursing and Sixth Form dormitories in order to assist those in greatest need. These visits took place at night, naturally, so that his charitable deeds would remain secret.

Wymbourne died shortly before the outbreak, at the hands (and teeth) of his butler, Wallace. The motive for the murder was never revealed, as Wallace himself died in custody in the nearby Bunney Street Police Department, his brains dashed out by another inmate.
