Post-War Paddington – walk 1 with the c20society

On Saturday we began our fieldwork with The Twentieth Century Society, specifically a walk around Post-War Paddington. The sun was shining and we were eager to get started.

Event Details: Post-War Paddington

Following the recent listing of the Hallfield Estate, Suzanne Waters will lead a repeat of this walk from July 2011. We shall be exploring the south Paddington area, looking mainly at the Hallfield Estate by Drake and Lasdun and other housing developments nearby. We hope to visit Hallfield School, also by Lasdun (exteriors only). We will be concentrating on the post war architecture of this area, with the exception of course of Lasduns own pre-war house, 32 Newton Grove.

Cost: Members only £12

Meet: Outside Paddington Station on the corner of Praed Street and Eastbourne Terrace at 2.00-4.30pm.

On Monday we followed up the walk with discussions about our project with Society trustees, guides and the director. It was great to hear how our research plans would become a reality: attending events, contributing to the newsletter and website, as well as interviewing members.

See our Flickr account for images and click here further details of the walk.
