Title42 Sinah Lane
Admin/Biog History42 Sinah Lane (also known as 'Saltings' and 'Salmon;) on Hayling Island in Hampshire, was a private weekend house built by Amyas Connell (of Connell and Ward) in 1934-1935 for Dr Robin D. Lawrence and his wife, Anna. Connell was commissioned at the same time to build a similar weekend house, 44 Sinah Lane (also known as 'Cucumber') for Dr L. Haydon and his family, who were friends of the Lawrences and wished to holiday together. Plans for the two houses were submitted at the same time to Havant and Waterloo Urban District council and accepted. After completion, the houses were regularly used by both families.

During the Second World War (1939-1945) the residents of Hayling Island were evacuated and the island was used as a decoy to protect nearby Portsea Island and Portsmouth leading to bomb damage to the properties. After the war, 42 Sinah Lane was restored by architect, Barry Russell, at the request of the new owner, Lawrence's sister, and with funding from Hampshire County Council. Both houses were listed in 1974.
