These three blocks of high rise flats, Haigh Heights, Canterbury Heights and Crosbie Heights, were built in 1965 by Liverpool City Council. They were also known as The Piggeries. They are typical of many blocks of flats that were built from large, pre-cast concrete panels that were bolted together on site with little attention to design, amenities or landscaping. Over 60 tower blocks were built in the city between 1956 and 1974, providing more than 5,500 homes. In the 1990s 54 tower blocks were demolished including these.
