Wisewood Estate.

Wisewood

Wisewood is the area at the top of the hill between the Rivers Don and Loxley. It is mostly comprised of the Sutton Estate built by the William Sutton Housing Trust, and the Wisewood Estate. The Wisewood Estate was known locally as the Button Estate (in contrast to Sutton). When originally built in the 1930s many of the occupants worked in uniformed occupations, such as policemen and tram conductors, and the uniforms were noted for their buttons.

Now that's something I didn't know.
