Bandstand, Hilly Fields, Brockley, c. 1900


Hilly Fields was purchased by the London County Council and dedicated as a public park in 1896.

This followed a campaign by the Commons Preservation Society, anxious to secure an open space for the recreation of the overcrowded poor of Deptford as well as the people of Lewisham, Brockley and New Cross.
