I still have not managed to find any reference to Sylvan Estate on the web. I know it existed as I lived there in the 60's.
All I can find is references to the Academy that now habits the old prefab estate.

Is there any one out there that can give me some hint for a place to find photo's or information.

I don't remember if it's been suggested before, but you can see an aerial view of the estate in 1945 to 1950 at UK Aerial photos. The free preview doesn't always work, so keep trying if necessary.

Many thanks Chris
Still trying to get my head around the picture shown in small scale. From what is shown I would have to guess there was a great deal of change in the 50's after the photo was taken.

At least it proves there was something there before the acadamy.
