AlanH I remember well climbing through the bushes myself to the greyhound track even though I could have got in for free due to family working there. I wanted to go on with my friends, I have spoken to many people who lived in the prefabs and then moved into the houses on the estate after they removed prefabs and they all said how sturdy they were and had everything you needed and lovely gardens each. Where I live we had 2 prefabs on the site but when they built the row of white houses on my patch, they fitted 6 on there, resulting on tiny gardens. Sadly, by the time you shut your back door and do your coat up your going out the back gate. "Ha ha", I won`t complain, it`s a roof over our heads but I wish I had lived in the prefabs as my home, at the time was in a slum area of Rochester due for clearance for many years. The prefabs had everything you needed, even if on a small scale, the only thing was that when they built the last of the phase, the white houses, to replace prefabs they built them on the same road pattern as the prefabs which, unlike them, means the people are alienated from neighbours as so many live in little closes where you don`t have passing people so you can go weeks without seeing anyone as most use the back entrances which are all at different angles and as there are no roads in the close, no passing traffic. I will say it`s kept its community feel and as long as you go to the local shop you`re bound to come across the locals.
