Hi I live in Ingatestone Road, SE25 and I was wondering how I could get hold of original spec of my maisonette from Victorian times....I'm currently restoring the place and getting rid of bad 1980s housing association upgrade that stripped the guts out of the place.

It would be good to get thing back to former glory....The road is listed as a road of archetectural significance.

Why not invite yourself round to the neighbours' houses? There might be one or two properties which have remained unmolested.

Thanks will try archives....already been in houses...they were owned by housing association....and 'renovated in the 70s' so original feature gone in most....as part of council modernisation plan!!
