Full Site Description

The first period of building included Edwardes Square, Earls Terrace, Pembroke Square (q.q.v.), terraces in Abington Road as well as a number of other terraces on Kensington High Street that are no longer in existence. This small terrace was originally intended to consist of 10 houses and to be called Elderton Row, set forward from the adjacent longer and grander Earls Terrace of 25 houses, at the east of which there was originally another small terrace matching Edwardes Place, but this was demolished in 1923/4.
