Details

Frank Crittall, the owner of a company that made metal-framed windows, built Silver End in 1926 for his employees. The village was designed to be completely self-sufficient with its own water supply and drainage, shops, schools and churches. A farm was also established which sold produce direct to the village. The factory even generated the village's electricity. It remains a nationally important village of 'modern movement' architecture.
