Old Compton Street absorbed Little Compton Street in 1896

(51.5137 -0.12988, 51.513 -0.129) 

Old Compton Street absorbed Little Compton Street in 1896.

A street sign for Little Compton Street remains visible on a wall of a utility tunnel beneath a street grate on a traffic island in the middle of the junction of Old Compton Street and Charing Cross Road.

Contrary to popular belief, this was a tunnel that previously ran under Little Compton Street, rather than it having been 'buried'.
