HISTORICAL NOTE: Park Village East and West (qv) were first
sketched out by John Nash in 1823 as developments of small
independent houses at the edge of Regent's Park. They had
great influence on the development of the Victorian
middle-class suburb. Both villages originally backed on to the
Cumberland Basin arm of the Regent's Canal, constructed
1813-16 to service Cumberland Market; filled in 1942-3. East
side of street demolished when the railway cutting was widened
c1900-6. The original Nos 18 & 20 were demolished following
damage in World War II.
