Summary : Two seventeen-storey point blocks built as public housing at Berry Brow. Each block contains 101 dwellings. Both blocks were designed by the Borough Architect. Construction is of in-situ concrete. The blocks were commissioned on separate contracts but were constructed by the same contractor. The first block was approved by committee in 1965; construction was completed in June 1967. The second block was approved by committee in 1969; construction was completed in 1971.
More information : The blocks were constructed by Huddersfield County Borough Council. The Primary and Alternate addresses are the individual addresses of each tower block; both are current and of equal status. It is not known which of the two blocks is the earlier block. The Alternate Name is the name that was given to the contract for the development. (1-2)
