Original message (posted by ashtonman01)
Anyone know exactly or roughly when the rest of the estate behind the Pit Pony was built?. I noticed on the early 70s map much of the estate was there but the remaining houses from roughly where the entry is behind Pit Pony was still spare land with allotments. They look like they were built in more recent decades, likely the mid-late 80s. I think the estate around Woodedge looks like it was built in the 80s.

Edit: from what I can gather, it looks like the whole of the estate behind the Pit Pony was almost completed around the early 80s, as was the estate on Woodedge on the opposite side of Skitters. On the maps from the late 70s, and possible early 80s as well, it doesn't appear to show the Pit Pony only a works and the garage. When they did build the Pit Pony?. Feels like it's been there for at least 40 years.

Why did they demolish the school where the estate is now at the bottom end of Soughers Lane in Bryn/Landgate?. I never knew there used to be a school there.
