Short measures: London's shortest street changes
Trivia fans will be disappointed to learn that Clennam St (right), just south of Tate Modern, is no longer the shortest street in London. Its 85-foot (26m) length has been pedestrianised, making it the pavement-table spillway for the excellent Lord Clyde pub.
The shortest London street I can find now - a genuine named street, that is, a thoroughfare with its own entrance and exit and buildings along it - is Candover St (right), a little north of Oxford St. It's a comparatively whopping 135 feet (41m).
