Winton Road Custom House was just north of the railway and Victoria Dock.
It is south of Cundy Road. These are to the west of Prince Regents Lane,
which can still be seen on the current map.
Winton Road is shown on the 1894 Ordnance Survey map as a road where the
housing development is just starting.
My Grandfather and Great Grandfather and their brothers were all bricklayers
who worked on building these houses. The houses were of low quality, with
back yards. Most of the occupants worked in the docks, railways and local
Some similar houses still exist particularly in the adjoining roads.
The area is still Custom House.
