Cranbury Avenue runs east to west from Onslow Road to Derby Road. It dates back to the 1840s; the Town Map of 1845-46 shows the street with a few houses, although it is not yet named. It was named after Cranbury Park, the home of the Chamberlayne family who owned much of the land in the Newtown / Nicholstown area. A surviving terrace of houses on the south side of the street at its western end, nos. 1-11, was built in the 1840s and are Grade II listed.
