Villa Street

Although its not actually in Bermondsey but part of Walworth I am sure many of us did walk down the street in the on the way to East Street market.
The actual site of Villa Street is half way down Albany Road on the right and is now forms part of the Aylesbury Estate.
The original Yates estate before the Aylesbury estate was built was the brainchild of Edward Yates a builder who constructed houses from the south of Old Kent Road to as far as Nunhead starting n about 1870
The family firm still exists and is based in Southwark and there main occupation id to renovate the older type property.
