Library, New Addington
Library, New Addington
Opposite the shops on Central Parade. Built in 1964. New Addington was originally developed in the 1930s before being enlarged by Croydon Corporation as a quasi-new town. Pevsner describes it as a "classic example in the 1950s of prairie planning, or the pointless over-provision of open space, so that everything is too far apart." He describes the library as an effort to improve on amenities and "visual interest" (the zig-zag roof). A more recent extension is on the left.
