NOTES: Laid out in 1670-1700 on land once known as Gelding's Close, this square became the ambassadorial and political district of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. It declined as a fashionable address after 1730 with the western expansion of London, notably Mayfair. It was relandscaped by Westminster City Council in 1953.
