This area was re-built in the 1960s as part of part of Ashton's slum clearance programme. The area had previously been occupied by rows of cramped terraced houses and the multi-storey flats and maisonettes built here were a big improvement at the time.
The buildings have had some re-modelling in recent years, with the leaky flat roofs of the maisonettes being replaced with new curved roofs. Security gates and other measures have given the residents more privacy than before.
On the left is the five-storey maisonette block of Welbeck Terrace, with the three-storey Margaret Terrace to the right. Behind that is the 13-storey Welbeck House, with Portland House in the distance.
