chancel and transepts in Byzantine style, by Sir A. Blomfield, were added. The church was again burnt down by an arsonist in 1987 and remodelled in 1874. The houses in Chester Square and the neighbourhood are not so pretentious as those in Belgravia, but it is still a fashionable place of residence. In South Eaton Place, near the south end, stood the Star and Garter Tavern. The end of this street was called Burton Street until 1877. In Elizabeth Street, first called Eliza Street in 1820, and until 1866 divided into Upper Elizabeth Street, Elizabeth Street, and Elizabeth Street South, stood the Dwarf Tavern, noted about

Belgravia is bounded by Knightsbridge & Grosvenor Place, as far as Sloane Street and Ebury Street, and named after Belgrave Square, which occupies the centre. Grosvenor Place, Lower Grosvenor Place, Hobart Place, Eaton Square, and Cliveden Place occupy the site of the King's private road, which had existed as a footpath, but was made a coachroad by Charles II. as a short-cut to Hampton Court. On the north side, where is now Eaton Terrace, was a coppice which provided wood for the Abbey. Houses were first built on it about 1785, and in 1725 a turnpike existed at its junction with Grosvenor Place. Admission to the road was by ticket, but in 1830 it was thrown open to the public under the name of the King's St Peter’s Church Road. Part of Lower Grosvenor Place was named Arabella Row in 1789, but became known by its present name in 1789. Hobart Place was first so called in 1836, but part of it was called Grosvenor Street West until 1869. It leads to Eaton Square, 1,637 ft long by 371 ft wide, 15 acres, and contains 6 enclosed

A house on the west side inhabited by Sir Frances Chantrey was pulled down during the construction of the underground railway. On the same side is the Royal Pimlico Dispensary, established in 1831. Part of the east side has been rebuilt. In Eccleston Place is the station of the Westminster Electric Supply Company, which supplies this district with electric light. On the west side, at the corner of Buckingham Palace Road, are Belgrave Mansions, built from designs by Cundy in 1868, a large block in French Renaissance style, with a frontage of nearly 300 feet. The centre of the open space is occupied by two triangular enclosed gardens, and is crossed by Ebury Street, once an open lane leading over the fields to Chelsea. Houses were built on it after 1750, and in 1779 the north-eastern end was named Upper Ranelagh Street and Ranelagh Street. The southwestern end was Upper Ebury Street, but the whole was renamed Ebury Street in 1867.

There’s another option enabling you to ensure fantastic photographs of your family with no stress attached, as Venture client Matthew Parry found out He contacted the studio to book a photoshoot with father Neville, stepmother Beata, son Oliver and daughter Nicole. It was Neville’s “one big wish” to have the family professionally photographed all together.

Venture perfectly captured how we relate to one another, especially my little brother and sister, and the photos make me smile each time I look at them.” Venture Photography Knightsbridge, 12 Knightsbridge Green, London SW1X 7QL Tel: 0207 225 9070 www.ventureknightsbridge.co.uk
