The land south of the river was developed when Vauxhall Bridge provided a link to central London. As Brixton became increasingly middle class with large residences, Electric Avenue was the first street in the capital to be lit by electricity. By the 1920s, the area was the main shopping centre for south London.
St Matthew’s is one of the ‘Waterloo’ churches built to mark Wellington’s victory, while the Art Deco Sunlight Laundry of 1937 is still run by the company that had it built.
The grand Victorian houses are now flats housing a vibrant multicultural community. Despite modern building materials, timber still plays a major role in the area’s shops, homes, offices, pubs, theatres, restaurants and cafes. Wooden floors are part of the great tradition of English construction: hygienic and hard wearing, they are also attractive and easy to maintain.
So if you have one to enhance your property, congratulations. Yet the passing of time and pressure of feet can lead to a dull appearance - or even more serious damage. You then need the
modern remedy from a professional Brixton floor sanding company.
We have worked for 20 years on all kinds of floors - from hardwood boards to parquet blocks. After repair or replacement of damaged timber, we sand to a smooth bare finish. The surface is then ready for the protective sealant of your choice: oil, wax or lacquer.
Our sanding machines are efficient and virtually dust free. We can work flexible hours - overnight or at weekends - to ensure that any closure - and loss of business - will be minimal.

Useful facts about Brixton:
Brixton is a district in the London Borough of Lambeth in South London, England. It is 3.8 miles (6.1 km) south south-east of Charing Cross. The area is identified in the London Plan as one of 35 major centres in Greater London. Brixton is mainly residential with a prominent street market and substantial retail sector. It is a multiethnic community, with around 25 percent of its population being of African and Caribbean descent. It lies within Inner South London and is bordered by Stockwell, Clapham, Streatham, Camberwell, Tulse Hill and Herne Hill.
The area remained undeveloped until the beginning of the 19th century, the main settlements being near Stockwell, Brixton Hill and Coldharbour Lane. With the opening of Vauxhall Bridge in 1816 improved access to Central London led to a process of suburban development. The largest single development, and one of the last in suburban character, was Angell Town, laid out in the 1850s on the east side of Brixton Road, and so named after a family that owned land in Lambeth from the late 17th century until well into the 20th.
The Brixton area was bombed during World War II, contributing to a severe housing crisis, which in turn led to urban decay. This was followed by slum clearances and the building of council housing. In the 1940s and 1950s, many immigrants, particularly from the West Indies, settled in Brixton. More recent immigrants include a large Portuguese community and other EU citizens. Brixton also has an increasingly ageing population, which affects housing strategies in the area.
