Swinton Street, Invercargill
Swinton Street is located in Rosedale and is 0.32km long. Swinton Street was named after a village, north of Coldstream, in the Borders area of Scotland, well loved by John T. Thomson (who first mapped out the town of Invercargill). Swinton Street is part of the block of land owned by John T. Thomson and was named Coldstream.
Today the street has lovely mature trees that no doubt hold memories of youngsters climbing its limbs, hiding behind them as part of hide and seek or simply as a place to lie under to watch the leaves tumble down in Autumn. Surrounded by history, across the road from Southland Boys High School, the houses are a blend of grand older houses and new-build.
