STREETS OF ELEPHANT & CASTLE


Christina Akama




Through my book I am hoping to convey that there is more than meets the eye to Heygate Estate; a lesson I learned when talking to its residents and when experiencing first-hand their passion to keeping their home the way it is. You cannot argue that the estate  has not served its purpose for keeping low-income families to live in central London, but in the world we are living in, where everything is evaluated in terms of profitability it makes sense to the government to regenerate the area.
