Recently, resident Aysen Dennis opened the doors of her 8th floor home on Aylesbury Estate. The whole housing estate faces demolition and is mainly empty. Her flat became a centrepiece of community resistance, hosting an exhibition of the struggle. ImageImageImage

In 1997, PM Blair gave his first speech from Aylesbury Estate, setting out his “regeneration policy”. ImageImage
