Browsing the map shows how the poor and rich can be separated by just a few streets, or sometimes be literally across the road.

Looking around Brixton, there’s large swathes of red and orange representing the most deprived areas, while a mere posh buggy ride away can be found the leafy, wealthy greens of Herne Hill and Dulwich Village.

Switching to the ‘Output Area Classification’ view (which shows the differing groups), turns Brixton into a bright orange hue, representing its multicultural make up.
