TQ3370 : White Hart, Church Road

taken 11 years ago, near to Penge, Bromley, Great Britain

White Hart, Church Road
White Hart, Church Road
Late C19th, by no means the first pub on this site, and standing at one of the corners of the 'Crystal Palace Triangle', Westow Street to the left and Church Road to the right. Apparently designed by Sextus Dyball. Note the variety of roofs. Information from The Norwood Society.
Dyball was a speculative builder-architect who designed a number of buildings in the area. Jonathan Meades wrote of him that he was "a local builder to whom all devotees of inspired ugliness and sinister gracelessness will be forever indebted. Did Dyball know what he was doing? Did he have any idea of the sensations that his creations would provoke? It is improbable that he was out to shock. Rather, it seems that he ... subscribed to an aesthetic system that, although not far from us, feels chronologically, seems unfathomably distant a vestige of an alien civilisation."
