Mornington Crescent Hadleigh
Was This Once Called Sinclair Road?
The following query was received from Derek Parker: Found the entire site astounding. Having lived in Mornington Crescent since 1987, I have recently started to develop a profound interest in the history of the area and your site does much to expand my knowledge. However, I understand that Mornington Crescent was at one time named Sinclair Road, this information having been given to me by a number of now deceased neighbours. Can anyone expand upon this particularly with detail of old maps and buildings?
As an Archive editor, I have attached a copy of the relevant part of the 1939 Ordnance Survey map of Hadleigh which shows an incomplete Mornington Crescent as well as Sinclair Road.
Perhaps someone can say when Mornington Crescent was completed and the Sinclair Road name lost from the records.
