NOTES: This Corporation of London housing complex was built on the northern edge of the City of London, an area devastated by bombing during World War II. It was to provide council housing at subsidised rents for the many people who serviced the offices in the City, particularly caretakers, secretaries and police officers. Hence the emphasis was on one bedroom flats. The first phase of the estate was officially opened in 1957. The estate was further enlarged to the West and completed in 1962.
