Alick Horsnell Street

I've nominated Alick Horsnell to have a street named after him in the new Beaulieu Park development in Chelmsford.
From humble origins in South Primrose Hill, Alick was a gifted young architect who studied at the Chelmsford School of Arts and Sciences and trained under Frederick Chancellor. As a RIBA-prize winning architect he was widely seen as a rising stars of his generation. He joined up at the outbreak of the Great War and, as a 33 year old second lieutenant in the 7th Royal Suffolk Regiment, he was tragically killed on 3rd July 1916.
