Allendale Close, Camberwell, south London
Allendale Close, Camberwell, south London
This low-rise residential development from the 1980s is an oasis of relative quiet just a few steps from busy Denmark Hill and Camberwell Church Street. It's possible that many people who live here work at King's College Hospital or the Maudsley, which occupy a considerable area to the south. I say relative because there is no escape from the Camberwell soundscape ambulance sirens, and jets approaching Heathrow: a dissonant whine swelling to a roar every two minutes at peak hours.
Old maps from the late 19th century show streets of terraced houses. Allendale Road is one of the streetnames; another is Selborne Road, now a stub off Denmark Hill. In Love Walk there is a stone inscribed 'Selborne', so the development may at first have been known as the Selborne Estate. Cuthill and Kerfield are other streetname elements retained.
