... AND THEN THERE'S THE MOORLAND VIEW
Sunday 19 December 1999
BUCKDEN and Hebden Courts: A striking pair of late-Sixties apartment blocks in the desirable Reinwood part of town. These well-maintained flats boast the latest in external infra-red movement detectors, front doors with brass-detailed spyholes and sealed anti-burglar aluminium letter boxes, and are reached via bright corridors painted with Alluminex silicon gloss anti-graffiti speckle paint. The redecoration budget of pounds 37.50 per room is just enough to hire a sander to deal with the floorboards underneath the swirly carpets, and maybe some paintwork. If you start to despair, just look at the "panoramic view" through the UPVC windows and catch sight of the Emley Moor Mast transmitter through the mist, built in the Seventies and at a sheer 1,804ft one of the most beautiful modernist icons in the country.
