TQ2273 : Alton West Estate, Danebury Avenue

taken 9 years ago, near to Roehampton, Wandsworth, Great Britain

Alton West Estate, Danebury Avenue
Alton West Estate, Danebury Avenue
One of the most highly regarded post-war housing estates, chiefly due to the variation in building types, landscaping and the generous allowance made for green space. The London County Council began planning in 1951 (chief architect Robert Matthew). Alton East came first, Alton West from 1954. Seen here is a group of point blocks and, nearest to the camera, one of the lower maisonette blocks.
Highly regarded by architectural commentators at least - the views of residents are less certain.
