About

A major arts and heritage project exploring the social history and continuing importance of the Warner Estate in Waltham Forest, London by artists Lucy Harrison and Katherine Green / Rendezvous Projects CIC.

“Warner” properties were built in the borough from the late nineteenth century until the mid-twentieth century, with many of the properties taking the form of distinctive red brick self-contained flats.

The exhibiion includes photography, oral history, exhibitions, a publication and forthcoming mobile phone app, as well as walks, talks and events for local people. A call out for photographs of the properties in different eras has resulted in a collection of around 100 images from 1902 to the present day, and the Warner Estate’s archive, now owned by Walthamstow Historical Society, has also been explored in detail. A new stage funded by Heritage Lottery Fund is involving volunteers in carrying out interviews, photographing the Warner streets and researching aspects of the Estate.
