John   Hardy was also responsible for building the original five terraced houses   adjacent to his home. These houses were built for workers on the Manor House   Estate and their families. Locals, during and after WWII referred to them as   ‘Sherwood’s Row’ after a man called Sherwood who came to Loughgall with the   army and married a local girl. The houses were rebuilt in 1970s by the   Housing Executive as their condition by then was recorded as ‘fair to poor’.   The first plans put forward for their replacement gave rise to local protests   as they were thought to be ugly and out of character. They are now privately   owned.
