Vincent Square
Vincent Square, taken 5 years ago
Former married quarters for personnel at RAF Biggin Hill, built in 1929. Some were damaged by bombing in World War II and demolished, although the gaps have recently been filled in a consistent style to the remaining houses, restoring the uniform appearance of the square (presumably as part of the adjacent Leavesden development in around 2007-8). The original buildings are all grade II listed: in this photo are nos 1-4 (the nearest block) - see LinkExternal link nos 6-8 (the far three of the next block, no 5 being a replacement build) - see LinkExternal link and nos 9-12 and 13-16 (the far two blocks) - see LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link respectively.
