HISTORY

A map showing the Sydenham
Sydenham
ward of Lewisham
Lewisham
Metropolitan Borough as it appeared in 1916.

Originally known as SHIPPENHAM, Sydenham
Sydenham
began as a small settlement, a few cottages among the woods, whose inhabitants grazed their animals and collected wood. In the 1640s, springs of water in what is now Wells Park were discovered to have medicinal properties, attracting crowds of people to the area. Sydenham
Sydenham
grew rapidly in the 19th century after the introduction of the Croydon Canal in 1809 which linked the Grand Surrey
Surrey
Canal to Croydon
Croydon
and a reservoir was constructed in Sydenham. However, the canal was never successful and closed in 1836 resulting in it being the first canal to be abandoned by an Act of Parliament. The London
London
a retail park now occupies most of the site. The Crystal Palace

In 1851 the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park was housed in an immense glass building, called the Crystal Palace . In 1854 the building was bought by a private company, dismantled and re-erected in Sydenham Park (now called Crystal Palace Park
Crystal Palace Park
). Exhibitions, concerts, conferences and sporting events were held at the Crystal Palace (until it burned down in 1936), and Sydenham
Sydenham
became a fashionable area; many new houses were built. In 1872, the Children's Hospital, Sydenham opened. It closed in 1991, its services being now part of the University Hospital Lewisham .

In 1860, the Walter Cobb department store at Lawrie Place, Kirkdale (now known as Cobbs Corner) opened, lasting until the 1980s. In 1884, Upper Sydenham railway station opened on the Crystal Palace and South London
London
Junction Railway linking Crystal Palace to London
London
Victoria via Peckham Rye. The station and the line were poorly used despite new houses being built in the area, as passengers preferred to use other stations near-by Sydenham Hill (opening in 1863), Crystal Palace (Lower Level) and Sydenham
Sydenham
which were on more direct routes. The ill fate of the Crystal Palace in 1936 saw patronage reduced and the route finally closed in 1954.

Sydenham
Sydenham
was attacked by enemies during the Second World War . The gas works were a target, but were never damaged. The railway which ran through Upper Sydenham
Sydenham
station was damaged, and some homes in the area were destroyed.
