near to Streatham, Lambeth, Great Britain

The White Lion, Streatham High Road
The White Lion, Streatham High Road
A fabulously elaborate Victorian pub designed by F. Gough and Co. in 1895. Stripey brick, decorated gables, a central oriel window, two octagonal chimneys and a roofline dotted with spiky finials. Although recently closed for a time, it continues as a pub under the same name, the Hobgoblin being a previous incarnation. It is within the Streatham High Road and Streatham Hill Conservation Area.
The course of Streatham High Road has been a major highway between London and Sussex since Roman times. Its current appearance is largely attributable to two major spells of development. The first was during the late C19th following the opening of Streatham Hill station in 1856, and the second was after 1911 when the line to Victoria was electrified. Though much-maligned and undoubtedly blighted by heavy traffic, closer examination reveals that the road is lined with a number of interesting buildings, some of which reflect the period between the wars when Streatham was a fashionable centre of entertainment.
