Gillam House was a 6 storey tower block located on Silwood Street on the Rotherhithe side of the Silwood Estate in Southwark/ Lewisham, London. Plans for the block were approved in 1955 by Bermondsey Metropolitan Borough Council and it was completed in 1957 by Kirk & Kirk. The block contained 51 flats. It was emptied in 2006 as part of the regeneration of the Silwood Estate and was demolished in October 2011. It is planned to be replaced with low-rise terraced housing.
The block was named after Samuel Gillam (JP) who, in April 1764, sentenced the murderer William Corbett to death. Corbett's Passage was located to the south of the site.
