A snippet of modern day life will be preserved for posterity as people gather to open a new affordable housing development.
The Bloc, an affordable housing development of 221 new homes in Watermill Lane in Edmonton is set to open today.
To mark the event, the Mayor of Enfield Councillor Chaudhury Anwar will join children from Wilbury Primary School in Wilbury Way to bury a time capsule in the grounds.
The capsule, which will include items carefully selected by Year 5 pupils, is not to be dug up until 2063.
Folliwing the burial, the building will be officially opened by the Deputy Mayor of London for Housing, Land and Property Richard Blakeway.
Constructed by Galliford Try Partnerships, The Bloc offers shared ownership, intermediate rent and social rent in one to four-bedroom flats and houses.
The development was designed by architects PCKO, and, once fully occupied, will accommodate more than 600 people.
