Heaton History Group member, Ian Clough, lives in Bosworth Gardens, in the first house to be erected on what he calls ‘the self-build estate of Tudor Wynd’. Ian has written a book telling the story of the construction of the 32 houses, gathered from some of the men who built them, their widows and other family members.
The book is available at most Heaton History Group talks. It is also available in eBook format as “The Self-Build Estate Tudor Wynd – Re-constructed from Memories”.
My family moved into 6 Tudor Wynd when the houses were first built. I was 18 months old. When I left home at 19 yrs my family remained in the house. My dad, James Robertson, was one of the plasterers. Loved living there.
I would love a copy of Ian Cloughs book.
Apologies for the delay in replying. II will forward your message to Ian Clough, the author.
