Oxtoby Way

Road with houses built around 1939 as part of the Streatham Vale Estate by New Ideal Homesteads Ltd. The name was decided by Mitcham Borough Council, as shown in its minutes on page 539, volume 5.

The postcode for this road is SW16 5HD according to the Royal Mail. The houses are numbered odd from 1 to 51 on the northern/western side of the road, and even from 2 to 48 on the east side. There is no number 50.

When built, this area known as Streatham Vale was part of Mitcham, and currently is included in the London Borough of Merton.
