There where the low rise development now known as the Scientist estate, located mainly to the east of Saxon Road, and the 30 high rise 'Bison' built blocks linked by walkways in the sky. In total there were about 1900 houses and flats.

In 1980's, widespread concern about the conditions on the estate including poor quality and crime which led to a number of initiatives that included door entry systems and walkway closures.
