Nature returns to this little street! Let property remain empty and open to the elements for a year or two and the ground soon returns to the wild. Compare this photograph of 5 April 1981, with those on previous pages, taken only eight years before. The two end houses, 38 and 39, had been derelict for some time, so a tree had sent its branches through the top window space. Here the area has been cleared for a much longer period. In the late 1950s the houses, 6 to 14, had been demolished and since then some rebuilding been done. On the land adjoining No.15 bushes and trees had taken root and reached this height by 5 April 1981. New small houses are to be built on both of these sites.
