Hartshead estate was planned to be prefabricated houses.
Concrete slabs made on site and then erected.The first 4 pairs of semi's on Gambrel Bank Road were built this way.
All the rest of the estate are usual bricks.
The Company was called "Beanland" I seem to think they were a US company.
I could do a bit of digging but I may be chain sawing some Walnut tree branches today which were over hanging my sons pool.Squirrel attack of the nuts stains all the pool area with almost black stains which are almost impossible to remove.

"What you up to?"

"I'm just watching The X Factor, dad."

What a way to find out your son will never make it to University.

A young constable sees his mates getting knocked down and beaten during a riot, bricks, bottles and stones flying everywhere. Thousands of violent protesters outnumber the police ten to one...

After a couple of minutes the young copper cracks and runs, ending up cowering in a shop doorway. A figure stands over him and places a reassuring hand on his shoulder.

"Come on son," says the figure "You're mates are still out their holding the line and doing their duty. They're relying on you - don't let them down...don't let yourself down...don't let the force down."

The young copper takes a deep breath..."You're right sarge, I'll be alright now." He stands up and starts to walk back to the line.

The figure says "Well, done lad...oh, and by the way, it's Chief Superintendent, not Sergeant"

"Bloody hell!" say the young copper "I didn't realise I'd run that far back..."

What great memories, Dannyx6, just the sort of thing I try to capture in my Prefab Village books! Although they are fiction, I try to create the sense of that bygone time and how characters feel when they move into a prefab and the closeness formed in the community.
I'd love to know what caused your remembered smell. Thank you for sharing.
