Semi-derelict blocks, Chalk Hill Estate. The high-density, high-rise Chalk Hill estate in Wembley Park was built in several stages between 1966 and 1970. Thirty high-rise blocks were linked by walkways to provide around 1,900 dwellings. Development of the estate, which was by then badly in need of regeneration, began in 1992. The rehousing of residents began in 1995. This photo was taken whilst the blocks were semi-derelict and awaiting demolition. The photo contributed to an exhibition, Tower Blocks: Love Them or Loath Them, held at the Museum of London in 1999.
