Maisonettes, 32-108 Dartford Street, Gateway Estate, Walworth, south London
Maisonettes, 32-108 Dartford Street, Gateway Estate, Walworth, south London
Maisonettes are flats or apartments on two floors. There are three levels here, with 13 bays on each side of the building, making 78 maisonettes. 77 are numbered, so there must be the equivalent of one for other uses. There is some outside space for play and a small basketball court as well as parking.
The Gateway Estate, Walworth
In the second half of the 19th century old maps show streets of terraced houses west of the Camberwell and Walworth Roads. Small areas of post-war clearance are shown in 1951-3. New streets, Gateway and John Ruskin Street to the south were created. Existing Dartford Street and Empress Street were remodelled where they entered the estate from under the railway. Beresford Street and Camberwell Gate disappeared. The partly-developed estate appears on maps between 1954-1970 though another map shows the estate complete by 1968. Its character is lighter and more open than the monumental brick-and-tile blocks of flats of the late 1940s and early '50s; this may be due to the design using different materials.
