Tollemache Almshouses in Ham

Social Housing of Ham - past, present and future.

Saturday 15 July 2023
11:00 to 13:00

This year's  annual Ham United Group architectural tour will follow a walking route with Richard Woolf, architect and building historian, as your guide.

Starting at Ham Library at 11am it will cover the establishment of community housing from nineteen century philanthropy to new housing planned for the twenty first century in Ham. Richard will introduce the topic with a brief overview on social housing and the forces both architectural, economic and political which have shaped development in the past. The tour will identify different building types, designs and approaches to social housing and try to chart the future of affordable housing for current and future generations.
