​A four-day festival showcased a council estate’s heritage with exhibitions, spoken word and afternoon tea.

Gascoigne poet John Akinde joined Barking Historical Society’s Eric Feasy to explore “domestic heritage” as Barking’s Studio 3 Arts marked 18 months of its Lottery Heritage funded Open Estate scheme.

Artistic director Liza Vallance said the public’s reponse to the festival, which ended with an estate tour yesterday, was “overwhelming”.

“This is a place that’s going through a massive regeneration,” she said. “Our role is to log the history.”
