Gentrification : Freeman Street

Post World War the UK needed to build many new homes and place workers where manufacturing needed them. By the late 60s/70s they started to build upwards and created high rise habitats. In Grimsby, five blocks were built but when in 1976 the UK Government handed the deep sea fishing rights to Iceland the area went into decline and in 2018 the flats were eventually reduced to rubble. The land is currently left barren as the decision makers decide what to use it for.
