1963 In the centre of this view is a large area where houses have been demolished in line with slum clearance plans. Meanwood Road runs from the left to right edge in the lower half of the view. Gasometers at a Gasholder Station on Sheepscar Street North can be seen in the bottom left with Sheepscar Council School bottom right. Camp Road (now Oatland Lane) can be seen along the top of the cleared area where St Matthews Church stands alone. Above Camp Road, several new housing developments are visible. Carlton Towers to the left with Carlton Croft and Close to the right. At the time of this view, Carlton Garth had yet to be built. The back-to-back houses in the top right await demolition.
