As many of our practitioners and students that attend the outdoor academy classes know, one of our regular spots is the hugely popular Heygate estate in Elephant and Castle. Unfortunately this beautiful urban jungle of trees and buildings has been scheduled to be redeveloped into medium high-rise density housing. Last week we met some of the people behind who are trying to raise awareness of the estate and try to shape the redesign of the development and increase awareness of this amazing space we use regularly for our training.

If you wish to know more about the estate and what's happening there, please check out for more info and look at our classes timetable for our outdoor academy classes that will include E&C.
