207 Upland Road - Is it still there?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Hope this is the right place to post this.

Throughout many generations, most of my father's side of the family has lived in Dulwich. My grandfather was born on Upland Road, East Dulwich in 1926. When I found the address where he was born I tried locating it on Google StreetView but I couldn't find the right house. I notice there is a gap in the houses near a junction and I fear it might have been bombed in the war. Could anybody tell me if 207 Upland Road is in fact there or if it has since been knocked down for whatever reason.

Many thanks

Number 207 Upland Road was demollished it faced onto Upland Road it was on the corner of Crebor Street, when a new terrace of houses were built they faced onto Crebor Street so I think about four houses were lost in Upland Road.

I dont remember any damage in this area during the War, all I do recall was a small sweet shop near the end on the right facing Dunstans Road. Your Grandfather would have been four years older than me.

    • Hi, I'm going to a wedding and would like to srub up a bit. Can someone recommend a reasonable but nice salon in East Dulwich/Peckham Rye/Camberwell? I'd like a manicure and pedicure, and some sort of eyebrow intervention.  Many thanks.
    • The ridiculous hyperbole about the park being ruined is not going to aid your cause take a photo a couple of  weeks after all the seeding and repair works I saw taking place at the weekend I would think it will be well on the way to repair. Anyone in urgent need of a picnic can use the rye common instead of the park. I live 200m from Colyton road this is very much my back yard.  I didn’t go and I fear I’m past the age group it’s aimed at. It’s been  well organised each year and it seems the organisers are trying hard to please residents,  who I don’t argue are inconvenienced for 3 days out of 365.  I was disappointed they got refused another weekend that I understand would be aimed more at families and fogeys  - much more my demographic.
