Great Lister St, Kellet Road Estate Nechells Green

Kellett Road Estate viewed along Great Lister Street, Nechells Green, Aston, mid-1990s.

Wickham House was a 6 storey block of 36 maisonettes, that was located on Great Lister Street on the Kellett Road Estate. It was situated in the Nechells Green area of Aston, Birmingham. It stood opposite the identical Offenham House and was completed in 1959. The entire estate was demolished in the mid-late 1990s as part of a wider regeneration of the Heartlands area.

In a visit to Birmingham by officials from Hong Kong in 1982, it was noted that Wickham House had undergone a refurbishment the year before. The building had been suffering from condensation and dampness, inadequate heating provision, poor security and neglected landscaping. As part of the refurbishment of the block, double glazing windows, additional thermal installation, a new central heating system, new bathrooms and new kitchens were installed, as well as redecoration of the exterior of the block. The average cost of the refurbishment was £8,400 per dwelling.

The estate was one of four that made up the Nechells Green / Duddeston complex of 27 tower blocks and part of the 67 tower blocks in Aston.
