The Peabody Estate, Blackfriars, central London
Built in 1871, the Peabody Estate on Blackfriars Road is a cluster of attractive yellow brick buildings with sash windows, ornate cornicing, cast iron railings and other period features. Inside its imposing arched entrance is a communal garden with a play area, mature trees and basketball courts. One of the oldest and largest housing associations in London, Peabody says it manages more than 27,000 homes across the capital, housing around 80,000 residents.
