    Residents of the condemned Ferrier Estate, many of whom are post-right-to-buy owners who have decided to stay put rather than accept derisory offers from Greenwich Council (£65,000 for a three-bedroom flat anyone?). While the council moves towards demolition and replacement in 2018. There are apparently 23 homeowners and three tenants left. Living amongst derelict tower blocks, sheet metal, filth and darkness. It looks suspiciously like the council, who have promised to keep the estate inhabitable until it's finally replaced, is applying its own unorthodox methods to encourage the remaining residents to leave.

    Once considered to be one of the most notorious estates in London.

    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 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.

    Between 1999 and 2003, detailed work was carried out by Greenwich Council to assess the future of the Ferrier Estate. It was concluded that a full-scale regeneration was the best option.
