Bayswater was populated by wealthy Londoners moving West from the City and the East End, taking its name from a well in Hyde Park, Bayard's Water, now the more stately fountains opposite Lancaster Gate tube. The area was more formally developed in the nineteenth century with grand stucco houses in crescents and squares. A fine example of this is Cleveland Square with its cream stuccoed buildings, large ratio of window to brick with black painted window frames and doors giving it a uniform grandeur (the square's 5th November bonfire night celebration is made very special by its setting). This village not only has Hyde Park on its doorstep but some of the squares have their own beautiful squares for their residents' enjoyment, Gloucester and Clevedon Squares being fine examples.
