Hopelessly Optimistic

Heygate Regeneration Scheme, Heygate Estate, Elephant & Castle, London


iPhone 4 + PictureShow, Iris


The 'Heygate Regeneration Scheme' appeared to be a makeshift community garden comprising several gardens from abandoned and boarded-up ground floor flats. It's presumably maintained by some of the very few remaining inhabitants of the estate. You have to admire the apparent creativity and determination of those involved given that, no matter how hard they object, this garden and all of their homes will undoubtedly be demolished in the near future.
