Have you checked the Valuation Office website, to see what the overall position on the estate is? A lot of estates had varying valuations, with one bed ground floor flats in band A, reflecting their "unsaleability" back then due to security concerns, but with larger flats on the higher floors quite often in band C.
Every council tax valuation on the country is on the site. Go to
and select Southwark as the "billing authority", then give your address details (street name first if it's estate blocks)
If there hasn't been a history of successful appeals on the estate much closer to the original valuation, I doubt if you'll get anywhere.
