Princes Avenue, Petts Wood, c. 1935


Princes Avenue, Petts Wood, was built in the early 1930s.

The houses were built by Noel Rees, Petts Wood's best-known builder. He was particularly noted for building in the mock-Tudor style, and these houses, in part, show that approach.

The view shows another characteristic of early Petts Wood: unmade roads.

This location was previously the site of one of Petts Wood's grandest Victorian mansions, Ladywood, which was demolished shortly before this development.
