Heygate Estate

Heygate Estate

Built in 1974 the Heygate Estate in Walworth, South London is soon to be demolished as part of the Elephant & Castle regeneration program.

It is to make way for a £1.5bn redevelopment, one of the largest in Europe, to provide a higher density mix of social and private accommodation.

Demolition is planned to begin in late 2010 but the estate will not be fully demolished until 2015.
