Council houses and estatesEdit
There are no large tower blocks. Several low rise blocks of 3, 4, & 5 storey blocks exist as well as 3, 4 storey blocks of masionettes. Some of these blocks were system built or of non-standard construction like No-Fines Concrete.
There are 4 blocks of 5 storey flats in the Stonegravels area, (may have been a 5th block as large gap between 1 block and the other 3). The blocks were refurbished a few years ago when pitched roofs were added and the exterior rendered (probably over external insulation). Similar blocks exist in Staveley, a small town near by.
