Kinnerton Yard , Belgravia

Kinnerton Yard was named after a village near Eaton Hall in Cheshire, the traditional family seat of the Grosvenors.
Kinnerton Yard is a cul-de-sac entered through a passage from Kinnerton Street. It contains mainly modern houses on the south side. There is a very unusual and attractive tree in the middle of the yard.
No. 31 at the entrance is an interesting design. It was apparently remodelled in 1980 by Chapman Taylor Partners, who are responsible for many Belgravia properties. There are flats upstairs which are reached by using a spiral staircase hidden in a brick cylinder.
