Kingswood Kids

The Kingswood estate had an undesirable reputation; people said that the overall design of low-rise. high-density housing, of closes and walkways and no through roads made it confusing to navigate and a muggers’ paradise. Those same features, however, made it safer for children to play out which they did with great enthusiasm.
