College Road, Dulwich, Southwark, 1985


This view is taken from one of the upper floors of Dulwich College and demonstrates the Dulwich Estate Governors' success in limiting development on their land.

The estate has been in the same hands since the 17th century and development has been carefully managed to ensure the best advantage to the various schools dependent on the estate.

Pond Cottages, hidden behind the trees is a group of timber fronted and Georgian brick houses, it forms an unusually picturesque group, even by Dulwich's exceptional standards.
