Eliot Place, Blackheath, 1864


Engraving published by Rock & Co, 11th August 1864

Eliot Place, a row of detached and semi-detached houses on the edge of the Heath, was built between 1795 and 1802.

It survives intact except for No. 9, which was rebuilt in 1911.

Benjamin Disraeli went to school there and a blue plaque records the residence of Sir James Clark Ross, the polar explorer, at No.2. The part of the Heath opposite became a semi-private playing field for the boarding schools in Eliot Place.
