@directions_bas Well Basildon New Town continues to inspire us!! @NewTownUtopia is a particular gem! 💎

Finally got around to watching @NewTownUtopia at the weekend. Fascinating and necessary viewing.

Highly recommend a brilliant doc I saw on #Basildon last night, covering its post-war New Town formation & ideals this Utopia was aiming for. Having spent much of my childhood there I always felt ashamed of its grey bleakness but turns out grey bleakness can really inspire.


If you've ever lived in a New Town or in Essex, or you're interested in Thatcher's Britain, or you've worked or lived in social housing - I strongly recommend New Town Utopia, available on Amazon Prime.
