street of brick detached houses, semi-detached houses and
bungalows built c.1960s, early 70s on what were known as
Red Lion Fields. Red Lion refers to the now closed pub that
was located at the top of High Street on the corner with
Chancery Lane. The street is named after the developer. All
properties have outstanding views. Many of those on the down
hill (north east) side have very steep gardens, are three
stories high and have their garages, front entrances and
living rooms on the top floor, in fact, from the street they
look like bungalows.
