Post war flats in BBC’s Howard’s End Mini-series

 

You’ll notice the chapel has moved closer up the street and a large Victorian red brick building has replaced the small Georgian workers homes of Arlington Way.

Nearly. Almost. But not quite.
On 11 January 1941 the north side of the square was bombed. Nos 43 – 53 were rebuilt in 1947 – eight as flats behind a ‘facsimile’ facade. These post war flats are, however, included in the opening scene of Howard’s End Series 1, Episode 1
