Earlsfield was developed around the overground rail station that was built at the end of April 1884 in the place of a large Victoria residence called Earlsfield. When the site was sold by the Davis family to the London and South Western Railway one of the conditions of the sale was that the station would be named after their house. Thus the name of that house provided the name of the station, and thence to the suburb. Earlsfield today is a fantastic area with an excellent young family community. It’s Vibrant high street has some great bars and café’s popular with young professionals. The area also benefits from an amazingly fast train link into London Waterloo making it an even more desirable area to live in.
The main residential area of Southfields is "The Grid". "The Grid" is a series of parallel roads that are crossed at right angles by a series of parallel streets - so named because of the grid layout of the streets. The roads run from Replingham Road, in the north to Revelstoke Road, in the south, and the streets run from Elsenham Street, in the west, to Astonville Street. "The Grid" consists almost entirely of Edwardian terrace houses, some of which have been converted into flats in the past. These Victorian terraced houses were built at the same time as the bordering terraced housing Wimbledon Park and the avenues to the south of The Grid originally had the same names as the streets in Southfields that led to them.Southfields tube station is in Travelcard Zone 3 of the London Underground network, situated between East Putney and Wimbledon Park on the Wimbledon branch of the District line. Southfields is the main London Underground station for the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
