Pictures[edit]

There are waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many pictures on this page. Isopropyl 04:30, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

I disagree. I was thinking what a brilliant exercise to map out the road pictorially like that. There are not too many London roads that lend themselves to this treatment, but I'm glad someone's seized the opportunity here. A similar exercise would be quite fruitful for the A10, but it would go on and on and on and on, I guess. Trying to remember what someone told me was the longest named road in London now (as opposed to the one with the longest name, which is Stoke Newington Church Street...)

The longest named road in London is Green Lanes, I think. Welkinridge 18:13, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Map[edit]

Some one needs to add a map of the road —Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.203.12.10 (talk) 13:23, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

  • Is there an article on the 1756 Act to be linked?
Although numerous sources refer to "an act" in 1756, none of them give it a name (which I would expect to be something like "New Road Act, 1756") and it isn't listed in List of Acts of the Parliament of Great Britain, 1740–59, so I'm not sure what else to do.

  • Watch for overlinks in history, Pentonville Road and Marylebone Road you linked in Geo.
That's what happens when you write articles backwards ... fixed Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:16, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
  • "The village attracted Greek, Cypriot and Asian immigrants following World War II.[13] In the 1970s, the estate came under threat from property developers who wanted to demolish the entire site and replace it with offices, which led to demonstrations and protests, including supporters from nearby University College. The plans were cancelled, but the original estate was still bulldozed and replaced by a set of tower blocks.[1" -eh isn't this 20th century? Seems a big gap from 1871 to after WWII....
I've added a bit from the source that says it just continually expanded in the early 20th century, which should hopefully cover it. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:16, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
  • Nothing more for cultural references? Never used in a novel etc?
Was that a teaser or a genuine question? Yes, sure enough Oscar Wilde has written about Euston Road as well. He gets everywhere, doesn't he? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 16:16, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
