Post war Pre-Fab Houses

Soon after the second world war a number of "Pre-Fab" houses were erected on Southboune Gardens and other roads locally. It is thought that the ones on Southbourne Gardens were somewhat smaller than those shown here.

None of the images here are actually of Southbourne Gardens 

One removed from Amershm can be seen reconstructed at the Chiltern Open Air Museum and you may take a tour on the video below (well worth watching).

If you can add any more and have pictures please do contact us

There are two more pages to read in this section, so as well as the opening page you can read the memories from people who used to live in them and also some more general information about post war pre-fab houses, where it has been written as relevant to the local area as possible.
