Oh we had to buy it, we weren’t eligible for housing, obviously we didn’t live here. We had to take out a mortgage and one of the reasons for choosing it was, we looked at two or three places, they were a bit cheaper here then they would have been in some other parts of, around London, of course. So that was one reason, which was just as well because when my husband died I had a mortgage to think about so. But it that was really the reason but we settled here very well and both found it very interesting, although it was early days of the New Town.
