Gibbs Square, Norwood
In 1924 Lambeth Borough Council acquired 18.5 acres of land on a hilly site for building 318 dwellings. The Bloomfield Estate, built in the 'garden city' style was completed in 1927; Gibbs Square where the houses surround a central green is a good example of the planning concept.
