Stuart Road is a bleak boundary

One of the nicest things about Ham is how the various areas that have been developed separately over the years come together to form a coherent whole. Stuart Road, off Woodville Road, is an exception to this. It forms a straight bleak boundary between the Wates Estate on the left, where the roads have names like Bank Willow and Lake Gardens, and the earlier social housing on the right, where we find Murray Road and Neville Road. Here it looks as though the two estates are facing off against each other in a battle for architectural supremacy.
