Blackman Close

Blackman Close street sign

This cul-de-sac was named in 1996 to mark the work of Dr. Geoffrey Blackman a much-loved family doctor in Kennington for 40 years, who had died ten years before. Whilst most street naming cause little controversy, this particular one became the subject of National Press and Television coverage following a complaint from a prospective purchaser! The Contractors called the development Meadowgate.
