Arthur Street, Kenilworth :: Shared Description

Arthur Street was named after the landowner Arthur William Street (1864-1934).
The road was first laid out in 1911, according to 'A Portrait of Kenilworth in Street Names' by Geoff Hilton. It was built on two fields called Hill Close and Charles Meadow (details from conveyance document)
The Kelly's Directories of Warwick and Leamington (including Kenilworth) list only numbers 1-7 (odd) and 10,12, 20-40 (even) in their 1933 edition. The 1934 edition adds a few other houses, with names only, but by 1936 the street was complete.
AW Street inherited the land from his uncle Henry Street in 1899. He also owned the Mill End fellmongery works and was involved with Leigh Mills in Bradford and Coventry. He was president of the Fellmongers Association of Great Britain in 1913-1915. He was a member of Kenilworth UDC 1900-1916, and chairman 1913-1916. He lived at Abbey Hill Lodge and later at Wilton House, Southbank Road, which subsequently became council offices. (from an article by Phil Street in Kenilworth History 2006-7)
