Courts and Closes

James Phillips, HGS Trust Assistant Architectural Adviser  explores the network of twittens linking the courts and closes of the Suburb.

Raymond Unwin's courtyard housing provided high-quality housing for people who could not otherwise afford to live here, including single women and men. With narrow access roads, and linked by a network of twittens, the courts and closes of the Suburb used land efficiently and were pleasant and safe to live in.
