For some reason I can't help thinking that looks like the kind of estate 'Bob Ferris' moved to in Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads. No Viva's to be seen !

Well spotted, apparently it was the same builder but about 30 miles apart. Bob and Thelma's new house was on Agincourt in Killingworth.

Some exectly like that on the poets estate in Abingdon. The garages were so narrow that you couldn't put your car in them. Well, you could...... but you couldn't open the car doors to get out!

Very similar to the new build that I moved into in Bromley in 1971. And talking of site safety, the house on the left was not built when we moved in, the builders still had around 10 houses left to build on the cul-de-sac. As it was the summer me and my brother used to go on the site nicking all the builders empty R-Whites bottles to take up the shops to get the 1/- that each one was worth. It was great climbing up the scaffolding and dropping breeze blocks to the ground and messing about in the waterlogged foundations.
