The 1920s - The Decade of Building


Following the ravages of war, the 1920s was the decade of building in Beeston.

The Council began an ambitious scheme of 'council house' building on the Beeston Fields Estate, to the East of Wollaton Road.  By the end of the decade over 200 new properties had been built in the area around Central Avenue.

Private house building flourished too with developers such as John H Brough very active during the period.  Broadgate Avenue, Cedar Avenue, Muriel Road, Louis Avenue, Scott Avenue & Waldemar Grove all date from this time.

Commercial and non-residential properties also emerged.  Work on Beeston Fields School started in 1929; The Boots Factory and site began to grow from 1927; and teh iconic Trent Building on what is now the University campus opened in 1928.

"I recently concluded my 2 year tenancy at a property managed by CP Walker and I can say that my experience with CP Walker has been a very positive one. The staff members that I dealt with have been very responsive and ensured that my requests for repairs were attended to very quickly. Even towards the end of my tenancy, I was kept notified of viewings well in advance. They have been very professional from the signing of the contract up until the handing over of the keys and I am delighted to have enjoyed a hassle free tenancy in one of their properties.
