The Excalibur Prefab Museum: Tours & parties extended until May.

The Prefab Museum- 17 Meliot Road, Catford, SE6 1RY

This temporary museum of post-war prefabs will close at the end of May. More info on Palaces For The People

Originally built by German and Italian prisoners of war in 1945 and 1946, six of the 186 bungalows have received Grade-II listing. The remainder of the estate will be demolished by Lewisham Council to build, except for St Mark Church, believed to be one of a kind.

Thousands of prefab houses were built across bombed-out London after World War II to help alleviate the housing shortage for returning servicemen and their families. Since then, most of the capital’s estates have been knocked down and Excalibur is set to be bulldozed and replaced by modern housing later this year.

Schedule:

Saturday 19 April: Tour of the estate – 2:30

Saturday 26 April: Prefab garden plant swap party – 2:00

Saturday 3 May: Archive tea party – 2:00

Thursday 8 May: VE Day 40s themed tea party – 2:00

Saturday 10 May: Tour of the estate – 2:30
