This area is dominated by the sprawling and undistinguished Weston housing estate.

The few interesting buildings are just outside the right-hand edge on the red square bordering the main road. These are covered in the next square east.

There was once an excellent painted garage door on this estate featuring a 'transformer robot'. Unfortunately, I never got around to photographing it before it was painted over.

In 2007 my attention was directed to an old Royal Observer Corps submerged station in the south-west corner of the estate. These pictures were taken shortly before building work started in the area. This is now destroyed.
