Henry Astley Darbishire

Person  Male  Born 15/5/1825  Died 1899

Categories: Architecture

From Anatpro: English architect mostly associated with philanthropic schemes, including the Gothic Columbia Market (1866) and the Gothic working-class housing-scheme at Columbia Square (1857–60), both in Bethnal Green, London, financed by Angela Burdett-Coutts ... but both demolished. For the same client he designed the Picturesque Gothic Holly Village, Highgate, London (1865), a group of modest houses round a green, influenced no doubt by Nash's Blaise Hamlet, Som. Darbishire produced a standard design for five-storey apartment-blocks (the planning of which was derived from Henry Roberts's pioneering schemes of the 1850s) for the Peabody Trust (set up in 1862 to ameliorate the condition of the London poor). Many of these Italianate blocks survive in London.
