Eight kilometres south of Charing Cross in the Borough of Lambeth is the south London district of Streatham. It is one of the 35 major metropolitan areas in Greater London, according to the London Plan and has two postal codes: SW16 and SW2. Streatham was once settled by the Romans, but later became an important area, especially during the 1700s, for its natural springs and the thoroughfares carrying people and goods. The spa, a result of the Streatham Wells, was an important part of the village and its development as the area became a destination for wealthy Londoners to build their country homes.
One of those large country homes was actually a Georgian mansion called Streatham Park. Though no longer standing today, it was bordered by Tooting Bec and was in important location in British history – it was where talks took place that resulted in the Peace Treaty of 1783 with France. Today, there is a plaque marking the site where the mansion once stood. At the southern edge of the district is Streatham Common, a large, public open space. Streatham holds another important position in history, as home to the first supermarket in the United Kingdom. In the early 1950s, Express Dairies Premier Supermarket opened and was a sign of the area’s growth and development.
One popular event today is the Streatham Festival, which has been going strong since 2002 and has more than 50 events in a number of places throughout the district each July. Another fun event is the kite fair on Streatham Common that happens every year as well. If you are a fan of live music, the Hideaway is a popular venue that features jazz and blues and even some comedy nights. There’s always plenty on in Streatham and you can visit anything from a regular old pub to a Morrocan restaurant, depending on your tastes.
It’s one thing to think about moving and quite another to actually do it. For one thing, we always underestimate the amount of stuff we own and the number of boxes we will need to pack. The best way to avoid this mistake is by having Handy Moves do a removal assessment for you, so you will have confidence when ordering your packing supplies and will know just what lies ahead. This will also help you with planning your time and organizing all the tasks that must get done ahead of your move out day. One of those tasks should be to reserve a parking spot for the removal van by going to the Lambeth website
. Once you’ve straightened out the parking, all you need to do is show up. We’ll do the rest. That includes everything from packing to loading to storing and transporting. We’ll even do the unpacking for you, so you don’t have to. Get moved into Streatham faster and cheaper with Handy Moves!.
