Zulla Road, Mapperley Park
Zulla Road, Mapperley Park
Mapperley Park is a Conservation Area with a wealth of late Victorian and Edwardian housing on tree lined streets. Within easy walking distance of the city centre it is a popular area to live and many of the large houses on the south of the "estate" have been converted into flats. Zulla Road, on the south western side, is one of only two roads in the Nottingham area beginning with "Z". The other is Zulu Road a couple of kilometres west in SK5542.

Many of the roads in Mapperley Park are named after 19th Century military campaigns. Zulla was a small fishing village in Annesley Bay on the Abyssinian coast, (now Ethiopia). The village became the landing point during the 1868 campaign to rescue British hostages from the mountain fortress of Magdala. An account of this campaign, initiated by a "diplomatic incident" between King Theodore II of Abyssinia and the British Government, can be found at LinkExternal link

Zulla Road joins Magdala Road at its southern end.
