No 16 Barclays Bank; No 18 Cook and Dood Lewis; No 20 McColls
This part of the Village has always been its heart and by the C17th was marked by a footbridge and some form of dwelling. It was the meeting point of a number of important estate and parish boundaries.
John Evelyn's Diary reports that Colonel Thomas Blunt made his own wine from grapes grown in the area "now covered almost exactly by Wemyss Road, Blackheath Grove, the railway line and the ground by and behind Nos 1-13 Blackheath Village" (Neil Rhind)
