School Lane was originally allotments, the present estate was built in 1964 to house tenants from the Alpha Rd estate, as it was being demolished and new properties erected. It consists of 110 maisonettes and a block of sheltered accomodation

1988 residents worked to raise funds for the Community Centre

In 1992 the Hard Ball area was erected on the School field, for the use of resident’s children after school, weekends and school holidays. Central heating and a rewiring programme followed. (Some properties had the central heating system upgraded in 2007)  in 1998, the estate was double glazed.

 
We have an Under 5's playarea and a Junior swings on the central grassed area, which is also a Dog free zone to prevent our children getting  Toxocara and Echinococcus which can cause Blindness and other illnesses.
 
We have an active Residents Association which works with the local housing management team, Police  and school.
