The Heygate Estate

A very quick article on the Heygate Estate in Elephant and Castle in London. There have been some really shocking decisions over the past few years by local government, land developers and others. The estate now resembles a ghost town as they are preparing for it for demolition. You can read more about the plight of the estate and the long-suffering residents (and mostly-ex residents as there are now less than 10 remaining) at http://www.heygateplaza.com. Shocking stuff it is!
