The Darnhill estate near Heywood, Greater Manchester was originally built by Manchester Corporation between 1947 and the 1960s.

An overspill estate is a housing estate planned and built for the rehousing of people from decaying inner city areas, as frequently occurred in most large British towns and cities for most of the 20th century,[1] usually as part of the process of slum clearance.[2]
