Property: 36-54 (evens)

A group of 14 terraced dwellings in Cambridge Road and Manor Road constructed in 1955 and designed by Eric Lyons who, with Geoffrey Townsend, started a business called Span Developments (See BTM: Manor Road 50-56). The company manufactured a number of fit-for-purpose economic post-war dwellings which showed that housing which had good modern architecture within landscaped surrounds was accessible for everyone. These dwellings are constructed with London Stock brick with brown fish scale tile hangings, white boarding to the ground floor (some has been replaced by UPVC). Many of the windows have been replaced. The simple pitched roof is in felt and the apex of the roof is offset, with a clerestory window to the rear. Garages to the rear accessed from Cambridge Road provide car accommodation which is out of sight and allows the landscape to dominate this corner location and the front gardens of the dwellings.
