Icknield Way (again)
Looking West you see the end of the row of cottages built for The Cheap Cottages Exhibition, opposite them is Norton Common and on the corner of the Common directly opposite you is the way in to the Open Air Lido opened 31 July 1935 to replace the old pool in Howard Park , you can just see the building through the trees.
Opposite is the Elim Hall . The original building of 1923 proved to small and a new hall was built around it , and the old one demolished from inside. The new Elim Tabernacle was opened in June 1927. It has again proved to small and is presently (2006) unused.
To the East is a mixed area , business along the South
The Tabbs estate is new houses only built about 1989, and there are also several groups of flats . The one shown below being the one that I think is most like a Garden City style building. (It has the little windows at the top and is set on an angle to the corner, but I am no expert). The density of housing here is much higher than usual for most older parts of Letchworth.
Beyond the new houses are some Council houses built around 1913 and what looks like some original Garden City cottages as you go around the corner into Green Lane, where Dents (Temple Press) publishing built the Temple Gardens groups of houses .
