A group of housing estates east of Blackheath developed by Span in the 1960's. Each estate takes its place unobtrusively in the local street pattern with much attention to tree preservation and internal planting details. The sensitivity to the scale of spaces formed by the buildings, and the relationship between paths and planted areas is evident. The style runs through but each estate has its own character and imagination never flags. Landscape architect is Eric Lyons and Partners. See The Keep, Corner Green, Southrow, Spangate, Hallgate, The Priory, The Lane, The Hall, Dale Close and The Plantation. Access from Pond Road or Blackheath Station.
