  1. About Clapham Park

    Clapham Park is an area in the Borough of Lambeth in London, to the south of central Clapham and west of Brixton. The original Clapham Park estate was a speculative development by Thomas Cubitt, who bought 229 acres (0.93 km2) of Bleak Hall Farm in 1825, and marked out plots for building around the new broad, tree-lined streets of Kings Avenue, Clarence Avenue, Poynders Road and Atkins Road. It was planned to consist of extremely large detached houses in Cubitt's characteristic Italianate villa style, set in extensive grounds. However, the ambitions of the developer were never fulfilled, and some plots remained undeveloped at the outbreak of World War I. Cubitt's own residence, Lincoln House, with its vast grounds, was demolished in 1905.
