Live in Stockwell
It is an area in South West London and is a part of the Borough of Lambeth. It falls within the SW8 and SW9 postcode areas and is in close proximity to Battersea, Brixton, Camberwell, Clapham, Elephant and Castle, Kennington and Vauxhall. It was formerly a rural area that featured many markets and gardens but in the 19th century, it became urban as many middle-class families moved here. The area is home to a wide range of buildings, with various estates from the 1800s. Many of these fall within a conservation area. The district has been redeveloped significantly over recent year. It has a large Afro-Caribbean population, as well as a major Portuguese community that reside in the area known as “Little Portugal.” The area has strong transport links and services, making travel easy. Many notable people have called Stockport home such as artist Vincent van Gogh, secret agent Violette Szabo, musicians Roots Manuva, Dot Cotton and Jerry Dammers, comedians Joe Cornish and Adam Buxton, theatre producer Lilian Baylis, and actors Joanna Lumley, Gary Raymond and Roger Moore.
