Southmere Towers, Southmere Lake, Southmere, Thamesmead, London: the tower blocks overlooking the lake with a swan in the foreground.

RIBA113788
Greater London Council. Department of Architecture & Civic Design
NOTES: Thamesmead was planned in 1965-1966 as a new town on the riverside marshes of south-east London between Plumstead and Erith. It was scheduled for completion in 1974 but was never fully finished and the projected population of 60,000 for the new town was downgraded to 45,000 by the end of the 1970s. From then around 400 houses were being built annually and by 1982, the population stood at 20,000. Since 2014 the managment and regeneration of the area has come under the aegis of Peabody.
