St Andrew’s Road / Lover’s Walk

History of Lover's Walk

St Andrew’s Road – houses demolished in June 1969 (MoC10aH36)

These houses are presumed to be at the Elizabeth Way end.

The three maps show the evolution of St Andrew’s Road from a track in 1885, to Lover’s Way in 1901 and St Andrew’s Road in 1926.
