After some effort, we managed to get them to change it, so we tend to get our post more now. However the origin of Eccles Place is a bit of a mystery.
This area was extensively bombed, so I had always presumed that this was why the street no longer existed. However, I've looked on old street maps, and can see no reference to it, going quite far back.
Hey Zoe, Tim from Styles here - I too have wondered about this for years but finally found an answer recently on a wartime map. It shows a tiny lane called Eccles Place running from The Cut to Isabella St, parallel with Hatfields and Joan Street. Somewhere along the line of the sheds/back of the Northstar property. Perhaps it even ran partially under our flats - so maybe we do literally live on Eccles Place!
Indeed, almost all of Styles House was built on land where properties were damaged beyond repair after the Blitz. But most properties on the east side of Eccles Place survived with little or no damage, so its perhaps likely they were in use after the war.
I finally found a map showing exactly where Eccles Place/Norfolk St was. It was a narrow street running along that strip of ground which is rubble and weeds, from behind the pram sheds to the edge of the concrete slab of the North Star building.
I didn't get a copy, saw it at the LMA and hadn't invested in a photography licence that day :) Hoping to find a better one including all our land (as this one didn't quite extend to the corner of Hatfields and the Cut). Will let you know!
