Thorpe Edge Estate Idle Bradford

click here for larger image

This is a photo of Thorpe Edge Estate in Idle Bradford, this particular estate was built in the 1950's, and finished by the end of the 1950's where over 2000 new homes had been built. This view is of the bottom end of the estate with the ultra modern York House dominating the photo.


  1. York House still stands, but the surrounding smaller blocks suffered numerous problems, eventually being demolished in the late 80s/early 90s.
