Vauxhall is an inner city area of South London in the London Borough of Lambeth and is located across postal districts SW8, SE1 and SE11. It has also given its name to the Vauxhall Parliamentary Constituency, which also includes large swathes of Brixton and Clapham. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Vauxhall area. Since 1998, the geographical confusion has increased as Vauxhall is now part of the borough’s North Lambeth town centre, for administrative purposes. There is no mention of Vauxhall in the 1086 Domesday Book. The area originally formed part of the extensive Manor of South Lambeth. However in 1317 King Edward II granted the manor of Vauxhall, Surrey, to Sir Roger d’Amory for his “good services” at the Battle of Bannockburn. From various accounts, three local roads – the South Lambeth Road, Clapham Road (previously Merton Road) and Wandsworth Road (previously Kingston Road) – were ancient and well-known routes to and from London. The land was flat and parts were marshy and poorly drained by ditches, and only started to be developed in the mid 18th century. Prior to this it provided market garden produce for the nearby City of London. It is generally accepted that the etymology of Vauxhall is from the name of Faulke de Breaute, the head of King John’s mercenaries, who owned a large house in the area which was referred to as Faulke’s Hall, later Foxhall, and eventually Vauxhall. The area only became generally known by this name when the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens opened as a public attraction. Initially most visitors would have approached by river, but crowds of Londoners of all classes came to know the area after the construction of Westminster Bridge in the 1740s. The late 1990s/early 2000s explosion in London property prices has led to a boom in riverside construction and property re-developments, such as the large St George Wharf development by Vauxhall Bridge. Residents include John Major, Chelsea Clinton, Dan MacMillan. Read more…
