These were built at the south end of Leighton Hill.
A resident remembers they were known as the 'New Blocks'.
Blocks A & B were built a few years earlier.
I've set the demolition date to December 1999, based on 80skid's memory. Let us know if you have a more accurate date.
I've also changed the title from 'South Blocks' to their correct name, Blocks C & D.
We'd originally used 1956, based on these Legco notes Moddsey found:
From Legco archives dated 21 November 1956, "New blocks at Chater Hall and Leighton Hill have recently been completed."
But today Dan Waters wrote:
I moved into Leighton Hill, new block, as soon as it was built in September 1955. I moved out at the end of 1956
So I've set the completion date to Sept 1955.
