TQ4075 : Kidbrooke Village: Cator Park

taken 4 years ago, near to Kidbrooke, Greenwich, Great Britain

Kidbrooke Village: Cator Park
Kidbrooke Village: Cator Park
This path runs through Cator Park, a linear park in the redeveloped Kidbrooke estate, and the cyclists shown here are crossing Cambert Way (one of the few roads of the old estate still to exist on its original alignment).

It is difficult to compare old photos with new in this estate with great precision, as the whole area is being completely transformed, but for the buildings previously around Cambert Way see TQ4075 : Cambert Way, Ferrier Estate, Kidbrooke nearly six years earlier, and TQ4075 : Ferrier Estate, Cambert Way shows their demolition in 2012.
The Ferrier Estate / Kidbrooke Village
The Ferrier was a large council housing estate in Kidbrooke, Greenwich Borough, London. It was built in the late 1960s and early 1970s, mainly on what had been a RAF training and logistics base.

The housing - a mixture of 6-storey medium-rise and 12-storey high-rise blocks, was concrete panel construction, quick to erect but not of high quality. By the 1990s it had become known as a "sink" estate with high levels of crime.

From 1999, regeneration of the estate as a mixed (private/social) development by the council in partnership with private developers was planned. Demolition started in 2010 and occupation of new housing commenced in 2011, but the whole project, renamed "Kidbrooke Village", will take several years.
