HELP mature student needing historic information on the land/foundations of the victorian houses in Lynton Road
in particular 1a Lynton Road
. I have a large case study to carry out on the above property by the beginning of December 2009 and cannot find any information on the web regarding the land that the houses we're built on, whom built them etc.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I lived in Southwark Park Road as a youngster and am now writing the story of my life for that period. The property in Balacalva Roads Alma Grove
and so on where built after the Crimea War circa 1840 and the Railway was opened in 1861 and run from South Bermondsey to the Bricklayers Arms relics of which can be seen at the old Southern Railway stables at the Junction with St James Road and Rolls Road
and with this in mind I would think the proertys in Lynton Road
were constructed between 1840 to 1860 the propertys in the middle of Lynton Road
were owned by the Gomm Family whos history can be found on the web and I beleive they were later taken over by Bermondsey Borough Council but I stand to be corrected
Hope this helps in some way
