Progress estate

The Progress Estate was built as Housing for munitions workers towards the end of world war one and subsequently taken over by Royal Arsenal Co-operative Society and sold when the RACS was taken over by the CWS. Well within the traditions of the Garden Cities Movement the houses are in a pleasing maedieval cottage style and are attractively arranged with delightful vistas. The Estate has worn very well in its 90 or so years.
