WYNDHAM ROAD

Postby Sean.Byrne » Tue Jan 07, 2020 3:00 pm

Plough and Crown, 24 Wyndham road, Camberwell

The address is listed as 9 Wyndham Road in 1861 and earlier, prior to street renumbering. Not to be confused with the Duke of Wellington, which is at number 9 Wyndham Road following the renumbering

The Bowyer family, who occupy a distinguished place in the annals of Camberwell, settled there in the time of Henry VIII. The family mansion, the manor-house of Camberwell-Buckingham, which stood on the right-hand side of the road from London to Camberwell Green, was built apparently about the reign of Queen Elizabeth the first.

The Bowyers purchased land in the area of Wyndham Road in 1583 by one Edmund Bowyer. In those days Wyndham Road was known as Bowyer lane. The Bowyer mansion stood for several centuries. The Royal Flora Gardens, in the Wyndham Road, formed for some time a favourite resort for the pleasure-seekers of South London during the summer months. Their most prosperous period was about the year 1849, when the gardens were well laid out and brilliantly illuminated; but the reputation of the place speedily declined, and it met the fate of all such speculations.
