Ashburnham Grove


This is a pre-war shot3 of Ashburnham Grove.  There are three things worth mentioning . Firstly, the railings are all exactly the same (not so now). This was before (I guess) they were given to the war effort. Secondly, you can just see a tall building on the left hand side of the road at the top. This was the end of Ashburnham Terrace - the terrace that went between Ashburnham Grove and Place, on Greenwich South Street. This terrace was bombed beyond repair in the war. Finally, just on the right you can see the original three houses - again these were lost to a bomb but subsequently re-built in fine pastiche styling (you would never guess on first sight that they are not the original).
