A Little Bit About Brixton
Brixton’s early settlements were situated around the ancient Roman roads of the Clapham Road (A3) and the Brixton Road (A23). The A3 linking the City of London to the port of Chichester.
Brixistane, the eleventh century incantation of modern day Brixton, meaning ‘at the stone of Brihtsige’ was used as a meeting place for local communities.
It was said that Sir Walter Raleigh had a house in Brixton and was visited by Queen Elizabeth I, but there seems to be no link in the name of Raleigh Hall and the Effra river (now underground) was not known to be passable south of Kennington.
Sherlock Holmes stories A Study in Scarlet, The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle (1892) and The Adventure of the Three Garridebs (1924) mention Brixton.
Brixton has great transport links, a tube and rail line. It is mainly residential with vibrant street markets and a mixture of shops and department store. It is on the border of Stockwell, Clapham, Streatham, Camberwell, Tulse Hill and Herne Hill.
