The 1960s saw the Dulwich Estate and Wates Homes build a number of innovative housing developments in the woods between College Road and Sydenham Hill. Sensitively designed and landscaped to respond to their wooded locations, and still largely unchanged, they remain excellent examples of mid-century modern housing aspiration.
Meet at the Tollgate on College Road and please note we will be walking up steep hills and there will be some rough ground in the woods.
