The general election of 1964 was a closely fought contest. Across the country, 77.08% of the electorate turned out to vote at polling stations such as this. The previous year had seen both the opposition Labour Party and the ruling Conservative Party loose their leaders. The Conservative Prime Minister Harold Macmillan resigned in 1963 and was replaced by Sir Alec Douglas-Home. Hugh Gaitskell leader of the Labour Party died suddenly in 1963 and was replaced by Harold Wilson, who defeated Douglas-Home in the 1964 general election.
