A little bit of history
Herne Hill was once part of the Manor of Milkwell, a mixture of woodland and farms that existed from at least 1291 until the late 18th Century. Brockwell Park was gifted to the people of Lambeth & Southwark by Lord Rosebery in 1892 who declared 'Whatever happens, this is preserved to you and your descendants forever as an open space.' Today Brockwell Park boasts the annual Lambeth Country Show, a local must-do.
