According to one book I have on Birmingham street names, it probably takes its name from the one in London, as does Islington Row. Strange little place - if anyone did live there once, they would not have got much sleep!Funny little road, I wonder what it was used for, what are the origins of the name,did anyone live there? where did it go to? Any point in it still being there? Perhaps some of our newer members may know the answers. Also, what's the point of double yellow lines? Nobody in their right mind would want to park there.
