Lower Belgrave Street , Belgravia

Like Belgravia itself, Lower Belgrave Street was named after Belgrave, a village near Leicester owned by the Grosvenor family.
Lower Belgrave Street is fairly busy as you would expect so close to Victoria Station. It's a one-way street taking traffic south. There are some nice looking houses with brick facades.
The 'Plumbers' Arms' pub was built by Thomas Cubitt along with the surrounding houses. It was the first place Lady Lucan ran to on a wet November night in 1974 when she was attacked in her nearby home by an intruder and discovered the dead nanny, supposedly killed by her vanished husband.
