photo i took of the entrance to Holly Village in North London. one of the earliest examples of a gated community in the country and from what i could see of the houses inside they looked amazing with towers and turrets and ornate wooden detailing

Henry Astley Darbishire who designed this hamlet also designed houses specifically for working-class Londoners as part of a trust whose aim was to improve the lives of the poor by building better housing for them
