The end of Godiva Crescent
The end of Godiva Crescent
A quiet loop of the Westfield estate with Bungalows and larger detached houses. The houses are now overshadowed by the 3-storey terraces built on the former market garden that was once behind them.
Parker Houses

Parker Bros. of Spalding built these houses in the mid 1960s, in their house style. The porches have a flat roof with a steel pole support, the panel below the upstairs window is tile-hung. Although most of these houses are found in the two large estates to the west of the town, they are also scattered here and there whenever 1960s infill occurred.

The Westwood estate to the south of West Road was not 'open plan': rather the houses had vestigial brick garden walls. And they used a cast concrete assembly at the bottom of the roof, instead of soffit boards, with an integral gutter hidden in it. A small number of houses was built near Mill Drove in the same style.

To the North of West Road the slightly later West­bourne and West­field estates had conventional roof construction with wooden soffits and plastic gutters, and no front boundaries. The houses were thus closer to the road, there being no grass verge.
