Dangerfield Lane Estate
The site proved to be the most difficult to reclaim because of the disposal of sewage and surface water, for which there was no outlet in the neighbourhood.

There were many old mine workings and spoil heaps up to 17 feet high. To deal with sewage, a new sewer 2 ΒΌ miles long had to be constructed from the estate to the Corporation Outfall Works at Bescot. A culvert also had to be constructed to discharge surface water into Leabrook.

By 1935 two hundred houses had been built on the site, which was designed to accommodate 454 houses.
