Prefab Post Issue 6
Swedish Post-War Prefabricated Houses
The houses were imported from Sweden at the end of WW2 to designs from the UK. Many are still standing and lived in. There are several different styles but typically, unless they have been re-clad, they have distinctive vertical wooden exterior planking. One pair of dormer bungalows in Ellers Lane, Auckley, Doncaster is listed Grade II by Historic England.
Written memories from Neil Cross about living in a Swedish House in Station Road/Ashtree Crescent, North Cave, near Brough, East Yorkshire
