33–51 Walden Street
Contributed by Survey of London on Feb. 17, 2020

On the north side of Walden Street, Nos 33–51 are isolated by the nurses’ residential quarter of 1969–76. Thomas and John Goodman were granted a lease for Nos 37–49 in 1829, and agreed to build seven houses. In the following year John Clarke took Nos 33 and 35 on similar terms. The two-storey houses with raised basements are typical of the type built on the cross streets of the hospital’s estate. They were converted into nurses’ accommodation around 1990. Similar houses at Nos 25–31 were destroyed by bombing in the Second World War. No. 51 probably originated as a workshop or stables in existence by 1855 in the garden of 43 Philpot Street.1
