At the end of the second world war, cheap prefabricated houses sprang up in many areas as housing was in short supply. Prefabs had an expected life of about ten years, but often remained in use much longer. These ones, at Western End off Craven Road in Newbury, pictured in 1973, were only demolished in 1975.
