History Of Penge
The name Penge is actually a Celtic word which means “the hill in the forest.” The forest is the Great North Wood that used to cover most of the north of Croydon. Penge was originally part of the Manor of Battersea.
Up until 1809 this area was barely used, though it was favoured for firewood and sheep grazing. It was then that the Croydon Canal was opened which welcomed visitors from both Croydon and London who came to enjoy the abundance of nature and the pleasant countryside.
Development in Penge only began once they enclosed the common and sold off the plots, this was in 1827. There were roads laid out at the same time, this included Anerley Road and Croydon Road.
One of the plots was purchased by William Sanderson who was a silk manufacturer from Scotland, he built the first house on Penge Common. It was named Anerley, which stands for only. When the London Croydon railway opened in 1839, it boosted the housing development in the area. The railway replaced the canal and the station was named Annerley Bridge, this resulted in the formation of the town known today as Anerley.
The area was home to gypsy who camped in the area until the early nineteenth century. In 1840 houses were built for the retired members of the Worship Company of Watermen and Lightsmen.
The tea gardens were a very popular attraction to the area from 1841 to 1868. They were located next to the station on a remaining bank of the canal. But closed when Crystal Palace was opened.
In 1850, St John the Evangelist Church was built and the station reopened in 1863. The Alexandra Recreational Grounds were laid out by the council in the 1880's and was opened to the public in 1891.
The move of Crystal Palace from Hyde Park was the main reason for growth in Penge in 1854. By 1851 there was one thousand one hundred and fifty nine people living in the area. St John's Church opened in 1850. By 1871 the population had grown to more than one thousand three hundred inhabitants. The majority lived on the slopes of Sydenham Hill in smaller homes to those higher up the hill.
In 1906 the tram network became electrified and was extended to Penge and the Crystal palace through Norwood. The route was closed in 1933, leaving only the Crystal Palace line. Both lines were later replaced by buses.
A number of the large Victorian developments south of High Street were replaced with newer homes, this was after World War I, but it was World War II that brought about major change to the area. The area sustained extensive damage during the war, especially in 1944 with the arrival of flying bombs.
In 1965 Penge was taken over by the London Borough of Bromley with a number of services being transferred to the area.
Interestingly Penge was well-known in the Victorian times for having twenty five pubs to the square mile. The Crooked billet is the oldest of these pubs.
