Mary my brother and his wife moved into the aylesbury estate when it first opened, they were moved from their ' slum' property in Long Lane
, which in actual fact was the top storey of a house which my brother had turned into a lovely flat and he built a small kitchenette on their landing.
They were moved into Wendover block with three small children, a year or two after the council decided to extend the length of Wendover block. For the next 2/3 years they endured unbelievable noise from the building work. One sunday afternoon a crane driver swung the jib around and misjudged the distance knocking one of the massive concrete slabs off which crashed down near my brothers front door where the children had been playing.
The next day my brother went to get a mortgage and moved out to Kent soon after!
Health and safety may have improved since then....
