Sumatra Road, NW6

New roads were constructed in the late 1870s. 346 houses were built between 1882 and 1894 in Sumatra Road, Solent Road, Holmdale Road, Glenbrook Road, Pandora Road, and Narcissus Road, mostly by JI Chapman of Solent Road, GW Cossens of Mill Lane, Jabez Reynolds of Holmdale Road and James Gibb of Dennington Park Road.

The area suffered during the Second World War, although not so badly as to necessitate large-scale rebuilding. One bomb site included nos. 76-86 Sumatra Road and nos. 9-17 Solent Road. There were replaced by an open space and clinic.
