 The Northwest area is mainly          
 residential, built in the 1920s and   
 '30s, with some recent (1973)         
 developments. It is predominately     
 middle class.                         
 Main features are the Greenfields     
 Hospital  and the New River Stadium . 
                                       
 The Stadium was built about 10 years  
 ago and cost about £6,000,000. 25     
 people work there and it costs        
 £250,000 per year to run, but only    
 takes in £100,000 from those who use  
 it! It is run by the local council and
 caters for children, women, schools   
 and special courses (e.g.fitness      
 training), as well as casual use.
