Ashridge Crescent, Shrewsbury Park Estate
Ashridge Crescent, Shrewsbury Park Estate
Recent times have not generally been kind to the inter-war London private housing estates. They have become rather unfashionable compared to Victorian and Edwardian areas - the houses are often sub-divided and front gardens have mostly been converted into car parks. Many of the streets have a slightly neglected appearance. This estate in Shooters Hill is very much an exception with neat hedges, proper front gardens and plenty of evidence that residents have pride in their homes. Greenwich Council should be congratulated that the estate has been designated a conservation area.

The houses were built between 1934 and 1936 by John Laing and Son to a variety of standard designs - including both detached and semi-detached examples. Some have art deco features but all can be readily identified with their era. At the time the most expensive 'deluxe' houses sold for 820.
