Lisson Grove is a district in West London, located in the City of Westminster and is considered to be a part of West End and take it name after the street.


Lisson Green was a little medieval manor that broke away from the manor of Lilestoneas early as 1236, with its own manor house.[1]

The hamlet remained was known as Lisson Green until it became urbanised,[2] while the street had once been known as 'Nytingale Lane', had changed dramatically. At the start of the 18th century, area had attracted workers into it.[3]

In the mid-18th century, Lisson Green began to expand and the village faced Edgware Road, with the green itself behind. By the time of the construction of the Regents Canal in 1810, the present street plan had been laid out and Lisson Grove was lined with stuccoed houses towards its southern end, while a white lead manufactory operated further north. Philanthropists turned their attention to Lisson Grove in the second half of the 19th century and built cottages and tenements.[4]

Municipal authorities took over from the philanthropists in the 20th century, building the Lilestone Estate before and after the Second World War and completing the Lisson Green Estate in 1974.[5]
