map
Named in 1878. Many roads in this area were named after the Crimean War (1853-1856). Marmora was probably named after the Sea of Marmora which links to the Black Sea. Backs onto Brenchley Gardens which were opened in 1928. Local recommendation: Omrith Indian restaurant

Another reference to the Crimean War. Scutari was where Florence Nightingale famously improved the health of British Soldiers from 1855. Runs from Peckham Rye south to Forest Hill border.
