TQ 2275 1 & 5/10
TQ 27SW 3/99
1936 by Minopro and Spenceley. Four-storey block of 64 flats. Modern in style
but traditional in construction - solid brick walls - chosen for insulation against
noise. Eight blocks 1-4-1 (projecting end bays have curved corners) arranged to a
semi-elliptical plan, with a tapering entrance hall leading to a circular stair
at the angle between each block. Brick balconies link the blocks at the upper
levels. Metal casement plate glass windows. The only significant modern
alterations are to the entrances which have modern doors with mosaic tile surrounds.
There are glazed canopies at roof level over each entrance end set of balconies.
