Guided Photowalk: Discover Tanglin Halt & Wessex Estate

March 30 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


Visually document and juxtapose different sights of Singaporean ‘heritage’ in this photowalk that will wind through Tanglin Halt and Wessex Estate.

2h over 1 session

Course Description
Once the living quarters of British servicemen from the 1930s to the 1970s, Wessex Estate still boasts of a unique and idyllic charm that is hard to find elsewhere in Singapore. Lined with black-and-white colonial apartment blocks that are situated next to sprawling fields with their strategically planted trees, the serene estate not only harkens to the country’s colonial past, but also the troops’ attempts to transform a piece of Singapore into a place reminiscent of home.

This purposefully-crafted route will first take participants through the quickly transforming Tanglin Halt heartlands and parts of the Rail Corridor before arriving at Wessex Estate. Participants will get the opportunity to visually document and juxtapose – not to mention, contemplate – vastly different sights of local ‘heritage’. The route will end at Colbar Cafe, a quaint old-school eatery situated next to Wessex Estate.

If you are looking to experience and learn more about Singapore by going off the beaten path to explore her hidden gems, as well as train your eye to photograph the unique compositions and shapes of the architectural features and scenic landscapes in these areas, wait no further – come join us for this guided photowalk!
