Mounttown Road Lower joins York Road through to Kill Avenue, and is part of the route of the 46A bus.

In the 1850s, Mounttown was a small rural village surrounded by open fields.  The centre of the village was the present location of McCormicks pub.

By 1870, Mounttown had its own gasworks and a gasometer.  An apartment block in Mounttown Park stands on the site of the former gasworks.
