One of two houses, the other being Woolston Lawn, erected on the site of Woolston House after its demolition in the early 19th century. The entrance drive to the two houses off the south side of Obelisk Road was incorporated into Longmore Avenue in 1936. Longmore Avenue and Longmore Crescent were named after Sir Thomas Longmore (1816-1895), Deputy Inspector-General and Professor of Military Surgery at the Army Medical School at Netley, who lived at The Paddock for many years, and whose widow continued to live there until her death in 1935. The Paddock was demolished soon afterwards.
