Can you tell me if 29,Deanery Gardens ,Bocking,CM75SU is of BISF construction.It was built by Braintree District Council

    Hi, I can't tell which is no. 29 but most of the houses on that road are BISF. The original steel canopies over the doors which some still have are distinctive.

    Aplogies Mike, I did reply to your e-mail request several days ago but for some reason the reply saved as a draft and was not delivered.

    Here's a copy of my reply: Hello Mike I can confirm that the property in question is a British Iron & Steel Federation (BISF) steel framed house the vast majority of which were built between 1947 and 1948, although some were constructed as late as 1952.

    These particular dwellings were built by John Mowlem & Co Ltd who's main construction base for this project was located at the Deanery Corner Site.

    I hope this helps and thanks to Ed above for taking up my slack.
