The Highams Estate

The Highams Estate is located in Highams Park, part of the borough of Walthamstow, East London, although it has a Woodford Green (IG8) postcode.


The Highams Estate was built within the former grounds of "Highams", a house built for the Lord of the Manor of Higham Bensted in 1768.

Most of The Highams Estate was built during the 1930s. Plans were drawn up for a much larger development, but economic and geopolitical events meant that The Estate ended up smaller, and took longer to complete.

The quality and distinctive design of the architecture used contributes significantly to the character of The Highams Estate. This was recognised by Waltham Forest Council when it was granted Area of Special Character status in 1988.
