A Victorian marvel beneath the streets: Crystal Palace subway
About Me (and my Obsession)
My obsession with London street names began in the early 90s when I worked in the Smithfield area and happened upon Bleeding Heart Yard. In my wanderings around London, I kept adding to my store of weird and wonderful street names. Eventually it was time to share – hence my blog. I hope you enjoy these names as much as I do.
- London’s lost rivers: Hanging Sword Alley, Crane Court, and Wine Office Court
- Fox and Knot: murder and pub signs in London street names
- Poultry and Hen and Chickens Court – names for National Poultry Day
- Greenberry Street and Red Lion Square: street names for St Patrick’s Day and Red Nose Day
- Bleeding Heart Yard: revisiting (and debunking) old favourites

What a hidden marvel! I cannot imagine how many times I must have been past this place, and had no idea it was there. Good reblog, Elizabeth.
Best wishes, Pete.
Fascinating, isn’t it? Her blog is very good – worth following if you aren’t already.
I am following 80 blogs at the moment, which is the most I can cope with. If I had twice as much time, I could follow 160!
