Old Town, Croydon
The road is a dual-carriageway and forms part of the A236 which is a major A Road connecting both Mitcham and South Croydon. The road, heading from Mitcham, joins the A236 from Roman Way next to Reeves Corner tram stop and carries on the three lane dual-carriageway past Old Palace School and Central Croydon Fire station. After this is a roundabout which is a junction with the Croydon Flyover on the A232 road, then Old Town carries on for only a couple of metres where another smaller roundabout stands. This is a junction onto Lower Coombe Street (A212) or Southbridge Road (A236).
The Old Town area itself has a large residential and business community, and is in the CR0 postcode area. There are two schools in the area, Old Palace School (also a church) and St. Andrews CE School. Old Town is home to Croydon town centre's main fire station, Croydon Parish Church and Surrey Street Market. In 2017 the area was the site of council-funded tech incubator scheme, with several companies relocating from central London.
