Houses in Denbigh Road
A rear view of nineteenth-century terraced housing at 1-8 Denbigh Road, Bromley-by-Bow. Each house has a two-storey extension with outbuildings (most probably for the outdoor privy and a coal shed). The gardens are separated by short brick walls extending from the outhouses to join wooden picket fencing. The brick wall between the two houses on the left has been dismantled and a gap left in the fence. The garden has been laid out with beds for planting, now overgrown; bricks lie scattered on the path; and there is a gaping hole in the outbuilding’s end wall. Next door, a small child enters one of the outbuildings while two gardens along, a woman hangs sheets out to dry on the washing line. Chimney pots fill the skyline. Denbigh Road ran in a dogleg off Fairfield Road, connecting to a road to the south (also Denbigh Road) via an alley. The northern section today is Hartfield Terrace while the southern section is Paton Close. The middle section, where these houses once stood, no longer exists. The terrace was demolished and incorporated into the site of Bow School.
