Heygate Estate, Walworth, c. 1973


The London County Council initiated a major development of the Elephant and Castle Area from the late 1950s.

The last stage in this process was Heygate Estate of 1970 to 1974.

Though big by most standards (it provided 1194 homes), it is overshadowed by the much larger Aylesbury Estate a little to the south.
