A little bit of history

Streatham, historically part of London's market garden, was once an important staging post on the route down to the coast. The Church of St Leonards in Streatham can be traced right back to Anglo Saxon times. Streatham once boasted 12 cinemas and theatres ' the only one left is now the ODEON, although the White Horse pub sometimes screens films in its back room. The heyday of Streatham was the 1950s when the High Road was south London's premier shopping destination, Roger Moore resided at the splendid (now Grade II listed) modernist Pullman Court on Streatham Hill and Britain's first supermarket opened here. In the 70s and 80s Streatham hit the headlines with revelations of the comings and goings in Cynthia Payne's brothel. Today Streatham is heading for a second heyday with investment in the Hub leisure centre and house development and various other new build residential, retail and leisure spaces in the pipeline.
