View of lynchets in fields looking towards blocks of high rise flats. The area is noted for the lynchets, which are raised banks of earth, and evidence of early farming from at least the medieval period. In the background, left is Parkway Towers in Brooklands Crescent, a 17 storey residential block with 99 flats dating from 1967. In the centre are two more high rise blocks, Parkway Court, left, and Parkway Grange, right. These are located in Foundry Lane and were built in 1967 on 15 storeys housing 87 residential flats each.
