This  is an aerial shot  of the Westwood estate probably taken in the late 60s or early70s. The estate became home to  many of the first incomers to  Peterborough even before the new town expansion. A survey of newcomers by the  Peterborough  Advertiser found the best things about the city were the cathedral, the Lido and boats on the river.  The worst were  the  amenities, entertainment and public transport.
