About Becontree in Detail
Becontree is located in the Borough of Barking and Dagenham, East London. This area is unique in the fact that it was purposely built to accommodate residents that worked in and around the area, mainly factory workers and busmen. In the modern day it still hosts a vast amount of residential properties and is considered the largest public housing estate in the world. Many of the residents that now occupy the area use public transport to commute into inner London for work. The nearest tube stations are Dagenham East and Dagenham Heathway, as well as railway links at Chadwell Heath and Goodmayes station also being accessible. Becontree has a few links to culture and music, including grime artist Devlin and the Dagenham Girl Pipers who reached fame in the 70s.
