...Once upon a time there was place far, far east from central London called Thamesmead where, in the old days, a grand estate was build for all the good people to live in.

The original development of Thamesmead South was build by the Greater London Council (GLC) between years 1968-74. A radical new idea was used, inspired by the housing complexes in Sweden, where it was believed lakes and canals helped to lower levels of crime and vandalism, predominantly amongst young people. This led to the use of water in the estate as a calming influence on the residents.
