Stockwell is a district in inner south west London, England, located in the London Borough of Lambeth. It is now an up-and-coming area, owing to its close proximity to Central London and excellent transport links, although once one of London's poorest neighbourhoods. Stockwell probably got the second half of its name from a local well; the other half is from "stoc", which was Old English for a tree trunk or post.
From the thirteenth to the start of the nineteenth century, Stockwell was a rural manor at the edge of London. It included market gardens and John Tradescant's botanical garden – commemorated in Tradescant Road, which was built over it in 1880, and in a memorial outside St Stephen's church. In the nineteenth century it developed as an elegant middle class suburb. Residents included the artist Arthur Rackham, who was born in South Lambeth Road in 1867, moving with his family to Albert Square when he was 15.
In addition to Anglican and Catholic churches, Afro-Caribbean communities have influenced the expression of Christianity in the area, with a variety of congregations, some sharing churches with more long established Anglican and Catholic congregations. One of the many Afro-Caribbean churches is C.A.C. Stockwell.
Stockwell and neighbouring South Lambeth are home to one of the UK's biggest Portuguese communities, known as 'Little Portugal'. Stockwell is well served by buses, with a number of routes either terminating there or passing through the area. There are plenty of things to do in Stockwell, if you are into drinking and dancing. Stockwell is by no means short of entertainment, but offers little in the way of spectacular attractions and particularly memorable and original nights out.
