The next time you pass through Newington Green in N16 take a moment to stop outside numbers 52 to 55. Situated on the west side of the green, here you will find the oldest surviving example of terraced brick housing in London - if not the UK. This is according to English Heritage, who also describe it as "one of the most remarkable groups of 17th-Century buildings in London". The properties are being considered for a Blue Plaque (which seems a no-brainer really!).
Number 55 has been restored and is currently on the market through Cluttons
Newington Green has a lot of history behind it, including having links to Oliver Cromwell. The Sunday Times (Brick & Mortar 21/9/12) has the full story
