Strong garden city tradition. Housing of the 1960s laid out like a New Town neighbourhood, small, cosily designed detached houses in that tradition with communal green lawns beside the roads and the numerous culs-de-sac. The earlier houses are near the shopping centre, with just a few short, stepped terraces. Designed by the Building Design Partnership.

Letchworth Drive.
That name should be a reminder how strong an influence the Garden City tradition still exerts
