Kinnerton Place North , Belgravia

You make your way through a passage from Kinnerton Street, 30 ft long and 3 ft wide and find yourself in a little courtyard with two-storey cottages on the south side.
The facades of the cottages are each painted in different colours. On the north side of the passage are the backs of some larger buildings in the adjoining streets.
Seth Smith built much of Kinnerton Street in about 1826 so he may have had a hand here too.
Kinnerton was the name of a village close to Eaton Hall in Cheshire, the traditional family seat of the Grosvenors
