Corringham Road is a manifestation of designer Raymond Unwin’s later ’Georgian’ phase.

Dark brick houses, built by Parker and Unwin round a series of open-sided courtyards. It was the first local road to realise the coming of the motor car and a large block of garages (now demolished) was built here.

The street leads from the busy Finchley Road to the serenity of the Heath extension. The housing reflects this, with symmetrical groups of semi-detached houses near to Finchley Road, and formal courtyard compositions close to the Heath providing a transition to the large houses of Hampstead Way.
