Cotton Gardens Estate, Kennington

Here's the map...
Although i'm not making any kind of exhaustive study this is the first estate I've come across since the Bungalows in Southwark's Brandon Estate which has a similar combination of very high and very low residential units...

from the estate plan above you can see how it includes 20 or so of these little corral-like houses with (i think) no outward facing windows apart from those related to the entrance


  1. Was here today - very interesting estate. I like the contrast between the high rises and low rise bungalows. High density has the benefit of creating open spaces which here was very evident, very nice green spaces unlike the bare patches of grass of some estates!

    Does this group still meet?
