Senegal Road disappeared under the New Den football ground.

The area around Senegal Road suffered considerable bomb damage during the Second World War.

By the early 1950s many of the voids had been filled with post war detached houses. By the 1960s more Victorian terraces were demolished and the site was cleared of all homes in the early 1970s. This gave way for playing fields and areas known as Senegal Fields.

The Surrey Canal was filled in in the 1970s and became Surrey Canal Road in the 1980s. In 1992 Millwall Football Club moved into the New Den, replacing the original Den.

Prefabs!
The "post-war detached houses" mentioned in the description were "prefabs" - self-contained single-storey pre-fabricated dwellings. Demolition of houses on the part that became Senegal Fields was complete by 1964 or 1965.

My mother and her sister were born at 9 Windsor Terrace
My mother, Millie Haring (later Miller) and her sister Yetta Haring (later Freedman) were born here in 1922 and 1923. With their parents and older brother and sister, they lived in two rooms until they moved to Stoke Newington in 1929. She always said there were six rooms, six families, a shared sink on the first floor landing and a toilet in the backyard.

Harmondsworth (1939 - 1965)
I lived in a house (Lostwithiel) on the Bath Road opposite the junction with Tythe Barn Lane, now a hotel site. Initially, aircraft used one of the diagonal runways directly in line with our house. I attended Sipson Primary School opposite the Three Magpies and celebrated my 21st birthday at The Peggy Bedford in 1959.
