Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate

Built in the seventies, this housing estate is concrete brutalist architecture in a ziggurat style designed to protect the inhabitants from the vibration and noise of the trains that run alongside it. It was the first council estate to be Grade 2 listed and has been in TV and movies (most recently "Kingsman: The secret service")
