Maiden Lane

Estate history


Maiden Lane Estate was built in two phases between 1976 and 1983.

It has 479 homes from bedsits to four-bedroom maisonettes. St. Paul's Crescent is the main access road into Maiden Lane from Agar Grove to the north.

Within the estate, at the end of St. Paul's Crescent, there is a small row of shops that serve the community. On the south side of the estate is a large community centre that runs a wide range of activities for the local community.

Maiden Lane is an interesting example of post-war modernist social housing, typical of much of the low-rise, dual-aspect housing in Camden designed by Camden Council architects during the late 1960s and 1970s.

Phase I of the estate was designed by architects Gordon Benson and Alan Forsyth and follows on from earlier work they did at Speedan Close in Hampstead, whilst working for Camden Council in the 1970s.
