Mabgate and Burmantofts, aerial view

Mabgate and Burmantofts, aerial view
Undated. Aerial view of the Mabgate (left) and Burmantofts (right) areas of the city. In the centre the 3 tower blocks of Cromwell Heights look to be recently built as the road layout around is yet to be completed. Cromwell Street is to the right of these with Green Road (now Lincoln Green Road) running from left to right across the centre and Cherry Row leading up to the top. Further blocks of flats appear to be under construction in the background, right; these are probably Spalding Towers and Grantham Towers, with Boston Towers yet to be built to the left of them. St. Mary's Church is in the foreground with St. Mary's Street in front and St. Charles R.C. School on the bottom left. At the top left is the junction of Sheepscar Street South, Cross Stamford Street and Regent Street.
