At its western end it leads into Thirsk Avenue and on the corner is St Barnabas church. Edenvale Road cuts across the road around half way and connects to Gorringe Park Avenue.


The road was originally called Annie Road, and its only occupant in the 1925 street directory was Francis KERBEY, at Orchard Bungalow.
