You may have heard older people talk of the daisy fields estate. Before Bristol Corporation built the Froomshaw Road estate it was a field covered in moon daisies. They were so tall that you could play hide and seek in the field.
Many of the first people to occupy the houses were people who lived in the prefabs further along the road. As their families increased they needed a larger house but wanted to stay in the district.
When the prefabs were built to ease the post war housing shortage they were state of the art. They had fridges at a time when fridges were a luxurious rarity. Instead of messy coal fires the heating was electric fires. And they contained the first fitted kitchens.
The gardens were generous and there were open spaces scattered about the estate. The roads were named after birds and some of the present roads still bear these names.
