The first documented evidence of Dulwich
Dulwich
is as a hamlet outside London in 967 AD, granted by King Edgar to one of his thanes Earl Aelfheah. The name of Dulwich
Dulwich
has been spelt in various ways, Dilwihs, Dylways, Dullag, and may come from two old English words, Dill, a white flower, and wihs, meaning a damp meadow, giving a meaning of "the meadow where dill grows". Harold Godwinson
Harold Godwinson
owned the land at one point, and after 1066, King William I of England. In 1333, the population of Dulwich
Dulwich
was recorded as 100. In 1538, Henry VIII seized control of Dulwich
Dulwich
and sold it to goldsmith Thomas Calton for £609. Calton's grandson Sir Francis Calton sold the Manor of Dulwich
Dulwich
for £4,900 in 1605 to Elizabethan
Elizabethan
actor and entrepreneur Edward Alleyn. He vested his wealth in a charitable foundation, Alleyn's College
Alleyn's College
of God's Gift, established in 1619. The charity's modern successor, The Dulwich
Dulwich
Estate,[2] still owns 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) in the area, including a number of private roads and a tollgate. Alleyn also constructed a school, a chapel and alms houses in Dulwich. Dulwich
Dulwich
Almshouse Charity[3] and Christ's Chapel of God's Gift at Dulwich[4] (where Alleyn is buried) still fulfill their original functions.

College

Alleyn's original school building is no longer used for that purpose, instead now housing the Estate's Governors. The school moved around 1840 to accommodate larger numbers of pupils into new buildings designed by Charles Barry
Charles Barry
(junior), son of Sir Charles Barry
Sir Charles Barry
who designed Westminster
Westminster
Palace. It was subsequently divided into Dulwich College and Alleyn's School
Alleyn's School
in 1882, the latter moving to the present day site in Townley Road. In the 17th century, King Charles I of England
England
visited Dulwich
Dulwich
Woods on a regular basis to hunt. In 1738, a man named Samuel Bentyman was murdered in Dulwich
Dulwich
Woods.[5] On 5 August 1677 John Evelyn
John Evelyn
writes that he took the waters at Dulwich. The Dulwich
Dulwich
waters were cried about the streets of London
London
as far back as 1678. In 1739, Mr. Cox, master of the Green Man, a tavern situated about a mile south of the village of Dulwich, sunk a well for his family. The water was found to be possessed of purgative qualities, and was for some time used medicinally. While the water was popular much custom was drawn to the adjoining tavern, and its proprietor flourished.[6] The oak-lined formal avenue, known as Cox's Walk, leading from the junction of Dulwich
Dulwich
Common and Lordship Lane was cut soon after 1732[7] by Francis Cox to connect his establishment of the Green Man Tavern
Tavern
and Dulwich
Dulwich
Wells with the more popular Sydenham
Sydenham
Wells.[8]

The Grove Tavern, public house, located on the busy South Circular road

By 1815 the Green Man had become a school known as Dr. Glennie's academy in Dulwich
Dulwich
Grove, although it was demolished about ten years later. Among the pupils here there were a few who became well known, Lord Byron, General Le Marchant and Captain Barclay. Dr Glennie held Saturday evening concerts which attracted visitors from outside the family circle, such as the poet Thomas Campbell, then living in nearby Sydenham, and Robert Barker, inventor of the panorama. Following the closure of the school, the building reverted to its original use and was known as the Grove Tavern. The building has now been boarded up and neglected for many years by owners the Dulwich
Dulwich
Estate.

In 1803, Samuel Matthews – known as the " Dulwich
Dulwich
Hermit" – was also murdered in Dulwich
Dulwich
Woods; he was buried in Dulwich
Dulwich
Old Cemetery.[5] 1811–1814 saw the building of the Dulwich
Dulwich
Picture Gallery. By 1901, the population was recorded as 10,247.

In the Second World War, Dulwich
Dulwich
was hit by many V-1 flying bombs and V-2 rockets. A possible explanation for this is that the British military when announcing V-1 and V-2 explosions deliberately gave map co-ordinates four miles north of the truth in an attempt to protect densely populated central London
London
and focus the drops on the open spaces in the suburbs instead. Geography[edit]

Hospital in East Dulwich
East Dulwich
Grove was designed by Henry Jarvis and built on 7 acres (28,000 m2) of land purchased in East Dulwich
Dulwich
by the Guardians of the Poor of the Parish
Parish
of St Saviour, Southwark, for the price of £50,000 in 1885.[9] At the time of opening in 1887, it offered a 723-bed capacity. It was transformed from an infirmary into the Southwark
Southwark
Military Hospital during World War I, when it is estimated 14,000–15,000 wounded soldiers were treated at the hospital. After the Poor Law was abolished in 1930, the Southwark
Southwark
Union Infirmary was renamed Dulwich
Dulwich
Hospital and the following year an operating theatre was built. In 1964, the hospital was aligned with King's College Hospital on Denmark Hill. There is no casualty department at Dulwich
Dulwich
at present. However, in 2015 it was announced that Dulwich
Dulwich
Hospital was to be closed and replaced by a school. There is a memorial fountain in Dulwich Village
Dulwich Village
which is in remembrance to Dr George Webster, founder of the first British Medical Association (BMA), who worked in Dulwich
Dulwich
from 1815 until his death in 1875. Old Burial Ground, Dulwich
Dulwich
Village, was created by Edward Alleyn
Edward Alleyn
as part of the foundation of his College of God's Gift. The Archbishop of Canterbury, George Abbot, conducted the consecration on Sunday 1 September 1616.[10] Guests included Edmund Bowyer, Thomas Grimes, William Gresham, Thomas Hunt and Jeremiah Turner. Thirty five Dulwich victims of the plague were buried in unmarked graves in the ground. Old Bridget, queen of the Norwood Gypsies (who appeared in the writings of Samuel Pepys) was also buried here in 1768. The ground was declared "full" in 1858, however the family of Louisa Shroeder obtained special permission for her remains to be interred in 1868. The ground's wrought iron gates and twelve tombs are Grade II listed. The old Grammar School adjacent to the Old College and Almshouses at the junction of Burbage Road and Gallery Road was designed by Charles Barry (senior). Houses[edit] Belair House on the boundary between West Dulwich
West Dulwich
and Dulwich
Dulwich
itself, is opposite West Dulwich
West Dulwich
railway station and was designed in 1785 for John Files. It remained a private house until 1938 when it came into the hands of Southwark
Southwark
Council. It fell into disrepair in the 1990s but was bought in 1998 and refurbished and turned into an upmarket restaurant. The house has a large park ground attached which is now public, including tennis courts and a children's play area. This area used to be the fields for its farm. The lake is the only substantial stretch of the ancient River Effra
River Effra
remaining above ground.[11] Bell House (Dulwich)
Bell House (Dulwich)
in College Road was designed in 1767 for Thomas Wright, a stationer and later Lord Mayor of the City of London. A large extension was added in the mid-19th century and it is accompanied by a lodge house. The house is Grade II listed. Its name comes from its Bell Tower situated on top of the original house and the bell was restored in the late 1990s. It became a Dulwich
Dulwich
College boarding house in 1926 and only returned to private ownership in 1993. The house was bought in the summer of 2016 by an educational charity. The Crown and Greyhound
The Crown and Greyhound
public house is in Dulwich
Dulwich
Village. In the 19th century, two separate pubs stood in this area - the centre of Dulwich
Dulwich
Village. The Crown was for the labourers of the area, while the Greyhound across the road, was for local gentry. The Greyhound was a coach stop on the London
London
Piccadilly-Sittingbourne route. Charles Dickens was a frequent visitor to the village and used to drink at The Greyhound pub.[12] The current pub, known by tourists, but never by locals, as "The Dog", is a Grade II listed building. In the 1960s, it used to be known as the venue of the " Dulwich
Dulwich
Poets". One of the area's most famous residents and architects was Sir George Frederick Ellyatt (founder of the architecture practice, Ellyatt & Porter). He was responsible for the design or influence of in excess of 25 homes in the area, each built in its own individual style. One of the most notable homes was Crossways, 1 Dulwich
Dulwich
Village, which he built as his own home following being granted permission to do so in January 1927 at a cost of just over £2000 and with a ground rent of £22 10s per annum. Uniquely, Ellyatt sought and was granted permission to build in 9" solid brick walls rather than 11" cavity walls (as was usual convention) as long as he used cement mortar. The site was originally occupied by a Georgian built home, known locally as "the Hall" which had become partially derelict during world war 1 and was demolished in 1925. Crossways still exists in substantially the same manner and form as when it was originally built. Churches[edit] All Saints Church, West Dulwich
West Dulwich
(Church of England) alongside Rosendale Road is a Victorian Gothic building, originally intended to be the cathedral for south London. The church was built between 1888 and 1897 and designed by George Fellowes Prynne, a pupil of George Edmund Street. Although plans were scaled down it was still a huge building and is a Grade I listed building. Unfortunately it was gutted by a huge fire on 9 June 2000, the cause remains unknown.[13] The building reopened in April 2006 after a three-year restoration project. St Barnabas Church (Church of England) lies on Calton Avenue at the edge of Dulwich
Dulwich
Village. The old church was designed by W H Wood of Newcastle upon Tyne and consecrated in 1894. However the original church burnt down in an arson attack by 'unknown persons' on Monday 7 December 1992.[14] The "Phoenix appeal" raised money to build a new church and the replacement structure, designed by Larry Malcic with an all-glass spire, was opened in 1996. In the south, the spire of St. Stephen's Church can be seen above the trees of Dulwich
