Single Street is a hamlet in the London Borough of Bromley, located between Luxted and Berry's Green,[1] and centred around a street of the same name.[2] The first record of a settlement under the name 'Single Street' is from an Ordnance Survey map in 1871,[2] but its name is derived from sengel, an Old English word meaning 'burnt clearing'.[1][2]
