What’s in a name?

In Dulwich OnView, new content on August 23, 2009 at 12:27 pm

I just found some more stories behind local place names in south London. There’s a piece about them on Dulwich OnView.

Do take a read of the article if you’ve ever wondered where the names Lordship Lane, Herne Hill, Breakspeare, Champion Hill or Gipsy Hill come from.
