World’s End Estate

The architects of World’s End Estate, Eric Lyons (famous for his modernist Span estates) and Jim Cadbury-Brown, did their best to avoid the mistakes made on high rise estates of the previous decade. Named after a local pub, the estate was designed for an extremely high population density, almost twice the maximum permitted by London Council. Plans had initially been rejected and only passed after a public inquiry, which appreciated the quality of the proposal. The construction took 8 years, because of financial issues and builders’ strikes.
