Hillside Estate, North Huyton
After a number of years in decline, Hillside, along with other nearby estates, was included in a major redevelopment programme which began in 2004. This involved the decanting of residents, clearance and rebuilding. Repeated delays in the programme resulted in partial clearance and dereliction alongside newly built properties often occupied by incomers.
I visited the Hillside Estate in the Autumn of 2007 and 2009 to photograph the area, interview local residents and devise and deliver participatory arts projects.
