Orient Street, SE11




Place Name

Along with West Square and Austral Street this is a reference to a compass point. The term Orient derives from the Latin word oriens meaning east, which itself comes from the word orior meaning rise. The use of the word for rising to refer to the east is one account of the direction from where the sun rises – hence orient.
