Ash Tree Grange, view from
Description:
1967 View from Ash Tree Grange, a block of high rise flats on the Swarcliffe Estate. Various examples of council housing are visible including houses, maisonettes and tower blocks. Ash Tree Grange was built to a height of 36 metres on 12 floors in 1965. Swarcliffe is, at present, undergoing a major, long term redevelopment which is managed by Yorkshire Transformations, a consortium made up of the Yorkshire Housing Group, building and maintenance contractors, John Mowlem & Company of Elland Road, and Halifax Bank of England. Before work was due to commence on the initiative in June 2005, the Ash Tree tower blocks underwent demolition along with the Langbars. A super long-reach excavator was hired, one of only two in the country with a reach of 40 metres to carry out the demolition. Yorkshire Transformations state that their aim is 'to improve the lives and homes of people living in Swarcliffe', and the project is planned in 5 year phases over the next 30 years.
