Such a pretty little ‘village’, of just over two hundred flats, in Havering, N.E. London. Residents consider themselves fortunate to live on the best estate in this London Borough.

Our village is democratically run by a committee of residents elected on annually and committed to upholding the vision of providing “A safe, pleasant neighbourhood where people want to be part of a vibrant, caring community”.

  1. Hi Mike, hope you’re well!

    I’ve been really enjoying reading your blog posts about the estate – do you still live here?

    I grew up on the estate, in Parkview House, and I’m hoping to return to start a photography project. I’ve tried contacting but so far haven’t had a response. Can you help?

    All best
