The Landscape Guide

Winstanley Road

An early high density scheme which was designed for a tough area and has survived despite poor maintenance. Hard paving dominates and has been carefully detailed with much use of brick. The spaces flow well between the blocks and tree planting softens the formality. One of the few clear successes amongst the redevelopment schemes of the 1960's. (Landscape Architect: Michael Brown) The landscape around the tower blocks which adjoins this scheme was refurbished (1982) by the London Borough of Wandsworth to create semi-private defensible spaces and some private gardens.

Between Winstanley Road and the railway, SW11.
