This delightfully quaint post-war home is part of the wonderful Prefab Museum, a living, interactive museum allowing people to share their memories and stories of  post-war life in a prefab house.


It started as a pop-up in March this year by photographer Elisabeth Blanchet, but in response to the success and popularity, it continues to welcome people inside the post-war prefab for a slice of cake and a cuppa. The museum displays a range of artwork, from photographs and illustrations to pieces from film makers, all of which are inspired by the post-war era. You’ll also find plenty of memorabilia and trinkets, and can get involved in events, talks, workshops, themed tours and parties. Plus it’s totally free, but for it to stay open and running it needs your help!


The aim is to raise £15,000 by September 23 and keep the museum going. Described as a ‘real piece of British post-war history’, the Excalibur Estate in south London is the largest remaining estate of post-war prefabs in Britain, so let’s try and keep the memories alive a little longer.
