1950s Housing Estate - Rhodes Way in the Tilgate neighbourhood, Crawley, West Sussex
This is one of the older neighbourhoods of Crawley, built as the town was being developed and expanded as a "New Town". These houses were built by Taylor Woodrow in 1957. Contrasting with the housing of the more modern neighbourhood of Maidenbower (see grid square TQ2934), these houses are of a much more uniform appearance from the outside. Fifty years has allowed a few variations of porches to be built on the front, but that's about it! This part of the estate was originally built as a batch of 3 bedroom semi-detached houses (though some have since been extended to the side and the occasional loft conversion provides extra bedrooms).
