Thames View Estate Barking, East London, built 1954Built in 'Festival of Britain style' it looks very similar to - and somehow a cross between - Frederick Gibberd's Chrisp Street Market, Poplar (built 1949-51) and Somerford Grove in Hackney (built 1945-48) it's situated next to the Barking Riverside development; apparently expansion of the new development will join the too housing project, no doubt leading to further 'regeneration' of Thames View Estate.
