Notes / History This aerial view of Pollards Hill housing estate, 1956, shows the extent of the large postwar development of the former Pollards Hill golf course. At this time there was a severe housing shortage. Existing prefabricated bungalows and houses built earlier would eventually be replaced by permanent houses or blocks of flats, the first of which are shown under construction in the photograph.
