Calabria Road, N5

Place name

Alludes to the Roman Empire, Calabria is in the southern tip of mainland Italy. Like Baalbec Road and Liberia Road it forms part of a small cluster of street names referencing provinces under the rule of the Romans. The developers are thought to have been influenced by the long held belief that a Roman camp had been at or near Highbury Hill. Originally founded by the Greeks it fells under the Romans following internal battles among the city states and eventually Roman might. This road was laid out sometime around 1890.
