The majority of this estate was constructed in the 1880s, although Dufferin Court dates from 1898.  P and Q blocks are of a very different character as these were rebuilt in 1956 and have recently had major enveloping works completed.  The estate also includes a sheltered housing block, Alleyn House (see separate entry for Alleyn House).
