Thamesmead :: TQ4680

Thamesmead was developed as a new town in the 1960s, '70s and '80s by the Greater London Council. It is situated on the south side of the River Thames, between Woolwich and Erith. Much of Thamesmead is built on reclaimed marshland.

The earlier phases of building were brutalist blocks of flats built from concrete, with connecting walkways above street level. later phases included more traditional street patterns with terraced housing.

When first built, Thamesmead's brutalist architecture was used as a film location, for Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange".
