Hummersea Hills

This photograph gives us a new perspective on Loftus;  this view looks over the field behind the Leisure Centre and the houses of Rosedale Crescent to Hummersea Hills, formerly Westfield Estate; nick name “Colditz” being applied owing to its resemblance to the WWII prison with that name.  Hummersea School can be seen to the front left of the estate. It took a while to get our heads round this view; the terraced streets of East Loftus can be seen behind the estate, on the right of the picture and Easington is in the background, on the left.
