Nigel Pitt leads this guided walk through the heritage garden suburb of Gidea Park, originally known as Romford Garden Suburb. In 1910 an architects’ competition / exhibition was held at Gidea Park. 121 eminent architects of the day designed and built 159 houses and there is consequently a wide variety of designs. A further competition took place in 1934 and there are also some good examples of ‘Moderne’ housing.
