The Totterdown Fields Estate, Tooting was one of the earliest LCC Council Housing Estates built in London. We will be presenting a talk about the Estate (online by Zoom) on June 1st 2021 at 7.30pm. The talk is part of The Wandsworth Heritage Festival.

John Boughton, our speaker, will talk about the significance of The Totterdown Fields Estate for the development of Council housing in London.

John Boughton has written and blogged extensively about public housing. In 2018, he published a well regarded book: “Municipal Dreams The Rise And Fall of Council Housing”, which is now available in paperback.

John describes The Totterdown Fields Estate as “…the first municipal ‘garden estate’ and the forerunner of many which followed but impressive both for its design and architecture and the vision which underlay them.”
