Precast wall panels JLP01_08_069294

St Marys Estate, Oldham. A view of precast concrete wall panels being installed during the construction of 12M Jespersen prototype flats in Oldham.
These four prototype flats shown in the photograph were built using the 12M Jespersen building system and were the first to be erected in Britain by Laing for the County Borough of Oldham. They were a short distance from the future St Marys Estate on which 500 dwellings were due to be built comprising of low rise flats and modern terraced houses, replacing the earlier slums which had occupied the area. The 12M Jespersen flats on the housing estate were later demolished in 2007 with only the houses left standing. The photograph is looking in a southerly direction towards Tommyfield and the Victoria Market Hall
