Kinnerton Place South , Belgravia

Kinnerton Place South is a cul-de-sac off Kinnerton Street. This began life as stables in the 1880s. The narrow entrances at either end were wide enough for horses but you couldn't get a car through. So nowadays the courtyard is pedestrian-only.
You enter Kinnerton Place South on foot, through a gated entrance and a long narrow passageway, which eventually opens out into a courtyard. There is a two-storey building over the passageway itself.
In the courtyard itself, there are a variety of attractive and individual two-storey cottages.
At the far end of the courtyard is the Judith Blacklock Flower School, which has a terrace and balconies above which in Summer are covered in an attractive profusion of flowers and creepers. There are attractive flats at the upper level. Otherwise, there are mainly businesses here.
Another small passage then leads out of the courtyard into Bowland Yard beyond.
