Cranbrook Estate

Tower Hamlets | Community Centre , Estate , Sport & Leisure | Ref: 8018

Sandwiched between Roman Road and Victoria Park is one of the older estates in Tower Hamlets, and you can see its distinctive grey, white and green panelling from Victoria Park and as far as Hackney Wick.

The Cranbrook Estate, named after a road originally situated on the land, was opened in 1964 and the  higher blocks are named after towns from around the world that Bethnal Green is twinned with - Velletri, St Gilles, Offenbach, Alzette, Modling and Puteaux - while the smaller buildings are named after roads that were razed to build the estate.

Also on the estate is clean and bright community centre and concrete football pitch.
