A Little Bit About Streatham
Streatham means “the hamlet on the street”. The street in question, the London to Brighton Way, was the Roman road from the capital Londinium to the coast near Portslade. It is likely that the destination was a Roman port now lost to coastal erosion, which has been tentatively identified with the ‘Novus Portus’. The road is confusingly referred to as Stane Street in some sources, although it diverges from the main London-Chichester road at Kennington.
After the departure of the Romans, the main road through Streatham remained an important trackway. From the 17th century it was adopted as the main coach road to Croydon and East Grinstead. In 1780 it then became the route of the turnpike road from London to Brighton, and subsequently became the basis for the modern A23.
The village remained largely unchanged until the 18th century, when the village’s natural springs, known as Streatham Wells, were first celebrated for their health-giving properties. The reputation of the spa and improved turnpike roads attracted wealthy merchants to build their country residences in Streatham.
Situated in postcode SW16 Streatham is currently undergoing a multi-million pound regeneration programme. Streatham Hub aims to provide new, improved leisure facilities, and create new housing and jobs.
Streatham’s most popular primary schools are Streatham Wells and Julian’s. Others include St Andrews, St Leonards and Granton Primary schools. Dunraven Secondary school has a good reputation and for private schooling, Streatham and Clapham High School are nearby.
