Bob contacted the Prefab Museum about his prefab house in Merrivale Road, Stafford. He sent some old photos which he and his family kindly agreed to share! The house has been identified, thanks to Paul Francis of the Airfield Research Group, and John Boughton who writes the Municipal Dreams blog about the history of council housing. Although the focus of the Prefab Museum was initially the temporary bungalows, I feel it’s important to include the post-war permanent prefab house programme! Thanks to Bob for the information and photos.
The house that I lived in for the first five years of my life (55 Merrivale Road, Stafford) was a two-storey prefab house. There were several of these which backed onto the grounds of Flash Ley School and I think also a few on the other side of Merrivale Road which do not appear on your map. There were also some in neighbouring Howard Road, I think. Those on the “odd” side of Merrivale Road were demolished in the 1960s or possibly early 1970s and replaced with low-rise flats (address now Thirlmere Way).
