Jardine Crescent, Tile Hill
Tile Hill estate was a corporation estate built in the 1950s on the principle of a neighbourhood unit in that it should incorporate housing with facilities such as community centre, shops, primary school, public houses and churches. Unlike estates built previously it was built with a mix of housing stock to provide for a variety of family sizes, young and old. People were moved here from several different parts of the city. The existing small woodland areas were retained and one of these, Limbrick Wood, can be seen on the right standing opposite the local shopping parade. Jardine Crescent was named after Dan Jardine, a site foreman who worked on the development.
