They say it's bad

but it's right by the Middlewood tram stop, which is very convenient.

no its no worse than stannington, my guess is your currently looking to move due to possible overcrowding. Council hosing is a needs based not a want based issue now you may not get anything better.

I’d imagine it’s all whether you drop lucky with neighbours.

Location wise it’s great with good transport links and park adjacent. Across the main road people pay a lot of money to live in wadsley Park village.

Post code snobs, Stannington is full of em, anyhow if you are round Fairbarn you are not going to see any improvement moving to Winn Gardens, they are both as crap as each other.

Winn gardens is an area of high deprivation.

https://www.police.uk/south-yorkshire/KE/crime/

According to the crime map (of reported crimes) crime is disproportionately high there.

Deer Park View, Wellington Road and Deer Park Close in Stannington appear to be about as bad though.
