Looking up the steps to Knight's Hill
Looking up the steps to Knight's Hill
Knight's Hill remained undeveloped until the Peabody Trust extended their Rosendale Road estate during the 1970s by building a series of residential blocks on the very top. The land had long been owned by the Knight family, but was bought in sections by the American banker and philanthropist George Peabody during the late 19th century. The original estate was built at this time. The railway line between North Dulwich and Tulse Hill dating from 1868 passes through a tunnel under the hill. Knight's Hill is also sometimes known as Peabody Hill to avoid confusion with the Knights Hill at West Norwood. The steps here lead up from the Peabody Estate and Rosendale Road to the top of Knight's Hill.
