Information + History
Marian Court is a council housing estate that is unlike any other. It was proposed to be knocked down and rebuilt in 2016, with the project ending in 2022. However due to multiple scandals, which have been heavily reported on by the news, this project hasn't started. There are even residents living on the bottom floor (can't imagine being them). I assume it will eventually be knocked down and rebuilt as more housing.
2 minutes walk from these dilapidated, unloved houses are million pound penthouses and Boris funded luxury shopping halls (half of the shopping centres are lying to waste even after being injected with money from the government.
The appartments are heavily covered with graffiti and, of what I saw, empty inside.

The Explore

With three/four dog units on site with open boots, with a 24 hours presence - to my knowledge, it's not an easy explore yet with a lack of a fence its easy to get into. The small site combined with the large amount of guards made it a uniquely hard place to explore.
We thoroughly explored the outside of the buildings before getting inside. After hearing footsteps and dog parks we promptly left and were chased off the site. I will go back at some point and get more pictures and hopefully have more luck.
A short explore, with a large amount of potential.

Nothing from inside though? Looks like a place to go if you are feeling a bit stabby :D

Good externals but would be even better to see something from inside really!

I'll go back at some point but the trouble is the dog units are parked right next to the entrances...

squatters more than likely
Man what an overkill, It always baffles me why some places like this are protected to the hilt & other gems are left unguarded.
Just the way some owners perceive their place I guess

I think it's more than likely to both protect the property from further damage and to protect the residents who live on the fenced off bottom layer.

Hey deos!

I've been following the Marian court case since a few years now and I also wrote a case study on it.. I've tried to interview the people who still lived there last year to see what was their point of view on the way the council treated them but they never got back to me. I managed anyway to get in contact with a member from the east end sisters uncut union that told me a bit about Marian court story from the beginning of its regeneration project!

It seems like they're actually starting the work for knocking down the blocks while a family still lives there, it's ridiculous! I also managed to get inside so if you want to share some stuff it might be quite interesting to see what we can come up with together!
