This street, which runs east from Asylum Green to Onslow Road, dates to before 1845: it is shown partly developed on the Town Map of 1845-46. It is one of 24 streets in Southampton listed in the Hampshire Advertiser of 6 April 1844 as having been built within the previous 15 months. Like Cranbury Avenue and Terrace it was named after Cranbury Park, the home of the Chamberlayne family who owned much of the land in the Newtown / Nicholstown area. A terrace of eight three-storey, yellow brick houses, nos 1-8 Cranbury Place, situated on the south side of the street at its western end were built c.1835. A similar house at no. 20 also dates from the early 19th century. All are Grade II listed.

The northern side of the street is occupied by Cranbury Terrace

4. 1-8 Cranbury Place
