Not far from where I work is this area, it looks like a small woodland but once it was a small community of Prefab Houseing. The small estate came about after second world war around 1950 The United Kindom Atomic Energy took over RAF Harwell. The RAF accommodation was all taken up by employees and more was needed, so they decided to use prefab housing. By the 1980's they were past their sell by date and the dission was made to demolish them. The area was left and became overgrown now all that is left is a memory.
Inside the hidden world is you find a an old road
You can still see the old lamposts standing in place
Look closer and you see the old fence posts still standing
All that lives here now are foxes and small deer and other wildlife. Birds like Green and Spotted woodpeckers are seen flying around.
Look around more and you can see the odd base of a prefab
The whole area in spring comes into flower with daffodils from the gardens that were here
Fruit on the blackberry bushes
Drains are still in place
and more fences
One road remains in use Avon Road which leads to Severn Close. One there were prefabs either side now a new housing estate sits one side and wildlife lives the other
Once it looked similar to this
Now the lost world looks like this
I found a blog called North Drive which has a bit more info which is also where I found the old photo
