World War One Interactive Map

A joint venture by the Dulwich Society, Herne Hill Society and the Friends of West Norwood Cemetery commemorates the centenary of WW1 in an Online Interactive Map. The map features locations in Herne Hill, Dulwich and Norwood and illuminates the contribution the area made to the war effort as well as the war’s impact on the lives of local people. Sites highlighted include Dulwich Village, where in 1917 German aircraft dropped bombs which killed two people, the Sunray Estate of post-war ‘Homes fit for Heroes’ and the military hospitals set up at King’s, the Maudsley and East Dulwich. mapsengine.google.com
