Most of the roads around SW9 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in SW9 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online. For smaller SW9 removals, using vans, we can load and unload for short periods on single yellow lines. Otherwise a dispensation would need to be booked, if we are packing and SW9 flat moving.
A Little Bit About SW9
The SW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1857. In 1868 some of the areas of the abolished S district were added. The postal district of SW9 covers Stockwell, part of Brixton, part of Clapham and part of Oval. The local authority covering these areas is Lambeth.
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.
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.
According to the Domesday book, Clapham began its existence as a Saxon village called Clopeham. Those records commissioned by William the Conqueror aimed at producing information about the current assets in terms of land and livestock of his people for the purpose of determining who is liable to pay what amount of taxes.
Clapham Road runs from Oval Underground station to Clapham High Street and was originally an ancient Roman military road called Stane Street. It became known as the Merton Road as it led all the way though Clapham, Balham and Tooting to Merton. The road existed for many hundreds of years as a wide rural lane on which coaches from southern parts of the country travelled to the City. In Georgian times City merchants began to build grand houses alongside Clapham Road and smart thinking businessmen built coach houses for those travelling by horse and cart to stay in on their long journey into London.
