I moved in here (Woodcock House) when mum & dad rented the flat on the front left corner of the 10th, next to top, floor. We were first tenants. It would be around 1964/5. The park was a cobbled brew with a pub at the top.I watched the other blocks around being built plus the International (LOL) Pool which opened in 1968. Lived there till I got wed in 1973. Dad worked in the Beer Keller, mum in the Horseshoe till they moved to Skem around 1976
