Basic Reading looks at some general texts that will give you an introduction to a wide and broadly based subject. The example pages reinforce some of the points we have been looking at in the class sessions. Early Landore is a good example of early industrial suburb development. Recorder Street is typical of many early inner city areas, whilst Henrietta Street takes the story further towards the end of the nineteenth century. New Street has its own place in housing history and we will look at that place in great detail. The Mount Pleasant Estate is built at the end of the nineteenth century in the classic 'urban village' style. Mount Pleasant as an urban village takes the theme further.

Greenhill has a special place in the history of the town because of the predominantly Irish community that settled there and the rapid development of the very poor housing that was built.
