Parkleys is Grade II listed by English Heritage as the first major ‘Span’ development by ground-breaking architect Eric Lyons, President of riba (Royal Institute of British Architects) 1975-1977. He worked under Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and became noted for progressive developments with signature attention to landscape and community, blending modernism with traditional elements like tile hanging and stock brick. Beginning with Parkleys in 1955-6, his practice gained many awards and as recently as 2005, Span received a special Housing Design Award for schemes meeting the Sustainable Communities Plan.
