The Elephant and Castle Urban Forest spreads in all directions from the Elephant and Castle tube station but the heart of the forest grows within the Heygate Estate, a social housing estate for 3,000 residents where no one now lives. Demolition resumed across the estate in late 2013 and access is now currently only available on request.
