Tottenham: The Broadwater Farm Estate, N17
Tottenham: The Broadwater Farm Estate, N17
The estate was built between 1967 and 1973 in a style designed by Le Corbusier where no dwellings were at ground level because of the high water table of the Moselle River which is culverted under the estate. The warren of first floor concrete walkways offered opportunities for crime and anti-social behaviour and the consequent bad reputation of the estate long before the riot of 6 October 1985 which resulted in the murder of PC Keith Blakelock. Further information on the history of the estate can be found on Haringey Council's website here LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) This is the Gloucester Road entrance to the estate. The mural on the end wall depicts a waterfall. I don't know if this is an image of an actual place or an idealized depiction of an idyllic rural scene.
