Ferrier was constructed by the London Borough of Greenwich on an old brownfield site to the east of Blackheath. The Ferrier Estate was built on two sites. Site A, approved in 1967, consisted of five 12-storey towers (Clegg, Crozier, Goldmark, Leclair and Sala Houses). Site B, approved in 1970, consists of six 12-storey towers (Felton, Ronald, Stainer, Standish, Sterling and Wixom Houses). The estate was built using a system of concrete panels, usually manufactured on site rather like the Thamesmead estate in order to enable buildings to be erected quickly.
In 1999, Prince Michael of Kent and the British Security Industry Association started a property-marking initiative at the Ferrier Estate, due to its notoriety as a ‘burglary blackspot’.
In 2001, a large terror cell and terrorist training facility was found on the Ferrier Estate.
Whilst it was being ripped down (literally) I spent time going into the site for this project.
It has now been demolished.
