The Wood That Built London: Alleyn’s college

The surviving parts of the North Wood are not only a natural asset but a historical and cultural one. Between Lambeth Palace on the bank of the Thames and Whitgift’s Hospital in central Croydon, there are no buildings more than four hundred years old except for the chapel of Alleyn’s college in Dulwich, which dates from 1619, though it was much altered by the Victorians.
