Addiscombe Road first appeared on a map dated 1594.

Addiscombe Road connecting Croydon with the hamlet of Addiscombe (situated near to the site of today’s Sandilands) to its east. Addiscombe as a place name is Anglo-Saxon in origin, meaning "Eadda or Æddi's estate".

The road was known as Upper Addiscombe Road in the 19th century to contrast with Lower Addiscombe Road - water from a spring ran down the hill.

The junction of Chepstow Road and Addiscombe Road (1907)

A rather idyllic scene from a time when it appears you could quite easily take a stroll with your dogs in the middle of the road.

Sandilands

Sandilands tram stop is a light rail stop in the London Borough of Croydon.

It serves the residential area along Addiscombe Road to the east of the centre of the town of Croydon.

Immediately to the east of the tram stop, the line descends in cutting to a junction with the trackbed of the former Woodside and South Croydon Railway.

The area of Sandilands tram stop was one of the few places where property demolition was needed during the construction of Tramlink, in order to make way for both the stop and the cutting link to the former railway line.
