A history of Patmore Estate
Our plan is to build a page with information about the history of the wonderful estate we live in. And we need your help!
We would love to hear from you, if you have any ideas about what you would like to see on this page. Do you have any information about the history of the estate, know where we can find resources, have interesting stories or anecdotes about life on the estate or perhaps some old photos? Please get in touch....
English Heritage - a History of Nine Elms
Attached here is a fascinating English heritage document of the history of Nine Elms, there is lots of really interesting local knowledge. If you are interested in Patmore Estate then jump to page 16 where there is a section on our estate. Did you know that building work began on on the estate in 1951 and that our blocks bare the names of locomotive engineers in homage to the nearby railway works?
