Housing

Apart from the occasional farm cottage or farm house, the vast majority of housing in the village is predominantly a mix of post-War council housing, mid-1960s buildings and 1970s/1980s buildings. The post-World War II housing is mainly nearer the north side of the village, whilst the 1970s/1980s housing was built to the south and west sides. The mid-1960s housing occupies the middle of the village. In the 1970/1980s, bungalows and dormers seemed to have proliferated while the 1960s housing is the more traditional 3- or 4-bed semi-detached type.
