The church is a small neat building, and is dedicated to St. Margaret; the Rev. William Downes Johnstone, M.A., is the incumbent. There is no village near the church, the population being at Shinglewell, which in 1851 had 91 inhabitants. Northumberland Bottom and Clap Hill are one mile north.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
