Cumberland Market Estate (for information on how to get to our estate please see the ‘Contact us’ page)
The estate consists of nine blocks of flats with a total of 491 properties and has been owned by Peabody since 2011 following a successful campaign by residents to prevent the estate being sold to private developers (please see the History of Cumberland Market / Our Homes Are Not For Sale page)
The majority of the estate was built in the 1920s and 1930s as part of the Government’s ‘Homes fit for heroes’ building plan for troops returning home from World War 1 and is very much part of the local history of the area. (more information on the history of our estate and local area is set out in the ‘History of Cumberland Market’ page)
