Note the absence of any pubs! Letchworth was built as a temperance town, so there were no public houses! There was a hotel that served alcohol, but you had to be a resident and alcohol was only served with meals.

Thanks for the tip, BruceR! Here's the image. I find it shows particularly well how people still prefer the direct way to all the planned rectangular road works - you can see the paths they made as well as the actual streets!

Indeed, fine example of the human temperament and the planners art not fitting too well. There was much further development, including completing the elongated roundabout seen in the centre of the picture. It is evident in modern aerial pictures of Letchworth, although the "cutting the corner" footpaths have gone.

There are a couple of planned factory towns on the Wirral. Port Sunlight is the best known, it still stands next to the Lever Brothers factory, now Unilever. I think you can just see it in the top right of this picture.

Also Prices Candles had a workers village, which can be seen here. ..
