1880 – Suggested outline plan of what would be Tradescant Street (Tradescant Road from 1911). This map comes from a book called The Tradescants by Mea Allan. Caption reads: “The Tradescants’ garden in Lambeth as it was in 1880. Their home, then called Turret House, was demolished the following year and the land broken up for development. Of the suggested roads, one was named Tradescant Road, another Walberswick Street in memory of the family’s Suffolk relatives, Thomas and Robert Tradescant to whom John the younger left legacies.”

 

To see where the streets were actually built in relation to Turret House and gardens, see our Before and after page.
