Michael Faraday (September 22, 1791 – August 25, 1867) was a scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include the principles underlying electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis. It was by his research on the magnetic field around a conductor carrying a direct current that Faraday established the basis for the concept of the electromagnetic field in physics. Like the other streets nearby this was laid out over the site of the old Croydon B power station, in Valley Park Croydon where the roads have a connection with the development of electricity. The others are: Ampere Way, Franklin Way, Hesterman Way, Kelvin Gardens, and Volta Way.
