Few little facts about Kennington
Kennington is an area of South London in the London Borough of Lambeth and is a mixed class residential area and is the location of the 'The Oval', the well-known cricket stadium.
Edward III gave the manor of Kennington to his oldest son Edward "The Black Price" in 1337 and the Prince then built a large royal palace between what is now Black Price Road and Sancroft Street.
Kennington Park (laid out by Victorian architect James Pennethorne) and St Mark's Churchyard now cover the site of Kennington Common. In 1746 the Surrey County Gallows at the southern end of the common was used for the execution of nine leaders of the Jacobite rebellion of 1745.
The common was also where the Chartists gathered for their biggest demonstration in 1948. The Gymnastic Society met regularly at Kennington Common during the second half of the 18th century to play football.
Cactus TV, which used to produce the Richard and Judy programme is in Kennington Road.
