A Little Bit About Stockwell
Stockwell probably got the second half of its name from a local well; the other half is from “stoc”, which was Old English for a tree trunk or post. Up until the 17th century there was a Stockwell Wood. The manor of Stockwell was created in the late 13th century, when King Edward I acquired the manor of South Lambeth and divided it into the two manors of Vauxhall and Stockwell.
From the thirteenth to the start of the nineteenth century, Stockwell was a rural manor at the edge of London. In the nineteenth century it developed as an elegant middle class suburb.
Its social and architectural fortunes in the twentieth century were more mixed. The area immediately around Stockwell tube station was extensively rebuilt following the Second World War, and the original domed tube station was replaced first in the 1920s, then again with the opening of the Victoria line in 1971. Stockwell is located in South London and is flanked by Clapham Road and Brixton Road all the way up to Kennington.
Stockwell features some stunning examples of period town houses yet to be converted to apartments, but the area mainly offers affordable ex-local authority flats centred around the busy tube station.
Located in post codes SW8, SW9 and SW4, Stockwell contains the largest Portuguese population outside of Portugal. This means that Stockwell has a fantastic selection of Portuguese restaurant and food options, particularly on the South Lambeth Road. There are a number of cheap but pleasant cafes, ideal for a continental breakfast.
There are also some of London’s most highly regarded pubs in the area, offering real ales and excellent food. To work off your indulgences London’s largest gym is also in the area.
Primary education includes Allen Edwards Primary School, Herbert Morrison Primary School, Reay Primary School and secondary education consist of Platanos College, Saint Gabriel’s College, Archbishop Tenison’s School and Lansdowne School.
