The Dover House Estate, Putney

A ‘Homes for Heroes’ estate begun by the London County Council in 1919 and reckoned – with its Arts and Crafts touches and greenery and open space to be one of the Council’s finest.

The Ossulston Estate

An unusual, Modernist-style, council estate built by the London County Council in the late 1920s and owing a little to the grand municipal blocks being built by Red Vienna in the same era.

The Wilson Grove Estate

A small cottage estate built by Bermondsey Metropolitan Borough Council in 1928 – a monument to the ideals and reforming ambitions of Alfred and Ada Salter, Christian socialists and Labour pioneers.
