Billy Banks Estate, Penarth - April 2012 (Pic Heavy)
Sorry guys, yet another Billy Banks report
The Billy Banks Estate was built upon the remains of a limestone quarry, overlooking the Penarth Flats. Originally considered a modern estate and even winning awards, it went into decline in the 1980s and a decision was made to redevelop the site in 1998.
Most residents left by 2002 with just a few remaining until quite recently I believe.
The estate is now almost completely derelect and some of the buildings have
already been demolished and new luxury accomodation is being built.
Thanks for looking
