The Netherlands, CR5

Place Name

It is part of the area known as The Dutch Village which as well as this road includes Wilhelmina Avenue and Woodplace Lane. It is so-called because the first part of the estate was designed and built during the 1920s to 1930s by a Dutch firm who used Dutch workers and materials. It was described by its Dutch architect Wouter Hamdorff as a “modern Dutch garden village”. Construction stopped in 1937 and the remaining section of the estate and its buildings designed and completed after World War Two by a different architect and building firm.
