Guerrilla architects and courtroom fisticuffs: a tale from regeneration’s frontline


Knight's Walk and Central Hill are each currently subject to applications for listing and the applications are being assessed by Historic England. Cressingham Gardens was also subject to an application for listing, but this was turned down. There are very few extant examples of housing of this period of this quality and these remaining examples that are much loved by residents should be preserved and refurbished. Lambeth's argument that there is insufficient money is simply not good enough. A similar argument, that we should not stand in the way of 'progress' was used by British Rail in the 60s in support of the demolition of Euston Station (where they succeeded) and St Pancras (where they didn't).
