The last remaining part of Heygate Estate is being torn down today. 

RIP Heygate and affordable housing in London. It’s such a shame, all the money spent kicking people out could’ve been spent updating the buildings. The way Southwark Council went about this is a total farce. They undersold the estate to developers and they aren’t even going to spend that money on new affordable housing. 

These old buildings may not be pretty to everyone but they are a key part of British Urban culture and history. I feel like the council wanted to demolish them because they’re a reminder of the uncomfortable truth that looking after people is what they used to do
