The September Historic Building Calendar

Inter-war – Semi-detached houses, Burton Manor, Stafford

The semi-detached house type was first used extensively in the Victorian period, when the new suburbs became home to a burgeoning middle class. But the house type reached new heights of popularity in the Inter-war period and vast numbers of semi-detached houses were built as towns and cities across England continued to expand.

This pair of semis date from 1926 and formed part of a model village, built by the Hall Engineering Company for their workers at the Stafford based British Reinforced Concrete factory. The village was designed by the Birmingham architect
W.G. Green and featured 9 different house types. The scheme was never completed and only 69 out of a planned 200 houses were built. In 2008 Burton Manor was designated a Conservation Area
