Blyth Wood, Blyth Road, Bromley, 1923


Built around 1896 by Robert Dyas, the founder of the High Street Ironmongers chain, Blyth Wood was the last and grandest of the houses in Blyth Road, one of a number of developments to the north of the town that followed the break up of the Bromley Hill estate in 1881.

Following Dyas' death in 1911, the house was sold but remained in private occupation until the end of its short life in around 1935.

In the late 1950s flats were built on the site.
