Friends of One Tree Hill Annual Meeting Wednesday 24th March 7.30 pm at St Augustine’s Church One Tree Hill, Honor Oak Park, London, SE23 3LE

Steve Grindlay will be speaking on:

A short history of One Tree Hill, with an account of the Agitation of 1896

One Tree Hill lies at the northern end of a prominent ridge of hills
that has marked the boundary between kingdoms, counties, manors and
ancient parishes for many centuries and has been an open space since
time immemorial.

In 1896 a golf club attempted to enclose the hill.

Local people campaigned successfully to prevent this and on 7th August
1905 One Tree Hill was “opened to the public, and dedicated to their
use, forever”.

The talk will cover the history of the hill, real and
fictional, and describe the successful campaign to save it.

Tel 020 8699 2812 or email s.pepperell@btinternet.com.
