TQ2684 : Taplow Tower, Adelaide Road

taken 10 years ago, near to Hampstead, Camden, Great Britain

Taplow Tower, Adelaide Road
Taplow Tower, Adelaide Road
The westernmost of four twenty-three storey blocks of flats strung out along Adelaide Road (separated by low-rise private estates). For some reason they are all named after towns in Buckinghamshire. By Dennis Lennon & Partners, 1965-70. In their wisdom, Camden Council have recently spared passers-by the shock of the previously exposed concrete by covering it up. In modern times, a glimpse of concrete is looked upon as something downbeat.
