Home is where the heart is, or where you lay your head.
Here there are so many people crammed into such a small space, pensioners, families, single parents, there is no privacy as everyone hears everything going on in the next flat.
Rents ranged from £250 to £450 a week depending on the number of bedrooms, and the landlords were raking it in.

James Lyton’s grandson was visiting and looked out of his grandfather’s window.
‘How many chickens do you have Granfer?’ he asked.
‘Chickens Archie? I don’t have any chickens. I couldn’t keep them here, We’re too high up and don’t have a garden.’
‘But those are your chicken houses opposite aren’t they?’
‘Chicken houses?’
James looked out of the window too and realised that Lyton Towers did indeed look like row upon row of chicken houses.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
