    Default Silvester Street

    Having been born in Oxford Terrace, I should be interested to know when Great Oxford Street became Silvester St.
    Could it be when St Sylvester's Church was built?
    Going further back when did Pinfold Lane become Vauxhall Road?

    Quote - "First stone of St Martin- in- the- field's church, Great Oxford street, now Silvester street, laid October 28 consecrated Jan 13 1829"

    No mention on the Streetname site and gleaned the above from the 'Churches' Site.
    I assume Grt Oxford Street must have been renamed Silvester Street, when St. Sylvesters was opened, although they ignored the 'y' and used the letter 'i'.

    Wow, these sites brought back some memories.
    The 'Black Church' (after its' bombing) was the best adventure (and dangerous) playground, ever!
    Rumour had it that if you could run around the perimeter with some sugar in your mouth and make it before the sugar dissolved, you'd see the Devil!!
    My Gran lived in St Martins Cotts - I can still remember her betting slip alias 'Shan87'
    Happy days ?????
    'Black Church' can be seen in the background of School footy team photo.
