Aylesford Street, SW1V

Aylesford Street, like the now-demolished Pulford Street, served the works of the Equitable Gas Company which had been established in 1830.

Geraldine Mitton in 1902 noted the St Saviour’s Mission House, built by the Duke of Westminster at a cost of £4000 which also served also for parochial meetings.

The gas works closed between the wars and the Tachbrook estate was built.

During the 1920s between demolition of the gas works and the building of the estate, Victoria Bus Station was located on the works site.
