Ashburton Grove was a former road, buried under the new Emirates Stadium development.

Ashburton Grove was originally a road of terraced houses, built in 1861.

Ashburton is a village in South Devon, near Totnes.

In time, the houses of Ashburton Grove went and were replaced by light industrial units and municipal facilities. By the early 1930s, the London North Eastern Railway was operating a coal depot in Ashburton Grove and in 1937, the Islington Borough Council’s reconstructed Disposal Depot & Cleansing Plant was opened there.

Arsenal FC announced its proposals to move from its Highbury ground to a new stadium, situated on top of Ashburton Grove in November 1999. Before sponsorship and naming rights, the new ground was called Ashburton Grove, after the street.

The cost of relocating Ashburton Grove’s industry and a waste recycling centre absorbed almost half the Emirates project’s total budget.

Frank Whipple Place, E14
Frank was my great-uncle, I’d often be ’babysat’ by Peggy while Nan and Dad went to the pub. Peggy was a marvel, so full of life. My Dad and Frank didn’t agree on most politics but everyone in the family is proud of him. A genuinely nice, knowledgable bloke. One of a kind.

My 2 x great grandparents and his family lived here according to the 1841 census. They were Dutch Ashkenazi Jews born in Amsterdam at the beginning of the 19th century but all their children were born in Spitalfields.

Polygon Buildings
Following the demolition of the Polygon, and prior to the construction of Oakshott Court in 1974, 4 tenement type blocks of flats were built on the site at Clarendon Sq/Phoenix Rd called Polygon Buildings. These were primarily for people working for the Midland Railway and subsequently British Rail. My family lived for 5 years in Block C in the 1950s. It seems that very few photos exist of these buildings.

Road construction and houses completed
New Charleville Circus road layout shown on Stanford’s Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs 1879 with access via West Hill only.

Plans showing street numbering were recorded in 1888 so we can concluded the houses in Charleville Circus were built by this date.
