Would any one know of a Love Lane in Stockwell about the 1920's? There is a Love Walk in Denmark Hill would this be the same one with a change of name? Is there somebody who knows the local history?

Found the reference to Love Lane now being Stockwell Lane on the link above.


Nos. 15–19 (consec.) Stockwell Lane

Formerly Nos. 6–2 (consec.) Park Place

"Like Garden Close on the opposite side of Stockwell Road, Stockwell (formerly Love) Lane still retains a faintly rural air. It is a narrow thoroughfare with houses on the north side only. Nos. 15 to 19 are terrace houses of three storeys above a basement, having simply designed fronts of stock brick. The paired doorways are dressed with wooden architraves and hoods supported on moulded brackets. The rendered reveals of the windows suggest that they once contained flush frames, while the details of the internal woodwork point to a building date of about 1750. The wall face of the top storey appears to be later than the rest and might replace a roof attic."
