TQ3369 : Howden Road, SE19

near to South Norwood, Croydon, Great Britain

Howden Road, SE19
Howden Road, SE19
Unusually for a suburban road, the house-numbering on Howden Road goes not from one side to the other, but all the way up one side and down the other. The Victorian villas on the right, northern side are numbered consecutively uphgill from 1 to 13; the numbering then returns down the other side, covering houses that are exclusively interwar semis. It seems clear that when the road was first laid out in the nineteenth century there were only houses on one side and for a couple of generations their inhabitants would have enjoyed a view onto fields, a view taken away when the land was broken into building plots between the wars.
