Lansdown House, Crawford Estate, Camberwell, south London
Lansdown House, Crawford Estate, Camberwell, south London
The northwest corner of the estate, in which high-rise slabs and two-storey terraces are arranged around squarish open spaces with trees and play equipment. Pedestrian access is tightly controlled by railings and occasional gates. The tree in flower is likely to be Cherry Plum (Prunus cerasifera). The street glimpsed on the right is Denmark Road.
Old maps show streets of terraced houses through the second half of the 19th century and into the 20th. Around 1950 the area is shown partly cleared. New housing first appears in the late 1950s between Crawford Road and Lowth Road. By 1961 the Crawford Estate is shown complete.
