Camberwell is a district of South London and forms part of the London Borough of Southwark. It is a built up inner city district located approximately 3 miles southeast of Charing Cross.
Until about 1800 Camberwell was a farming village surrounded by woods and fields. Mineral wells and springs abounded in the area until about 1850. One of the wells was reputed to have healing properties and many invalids visited in the hope of a cure. It is perhaps significant that the local church is named in honour of St Giles, the Patron Saint of Cripples.
These days Camberwell forms a mixture of the old and new, with charming well preserved Georgian houses to many council blocks and 20th century housing. There is a growing population of students and artsy/musical individuals who centre around Camberwell College of Arts and nearby South London Gallery.
Camberwell has plenty of local amenities and is home to one of London’s teaching hospitals, Kings College Hospital. It is well served by many bus routes
only a short journey into Central London. There are regular trains from Denmark Hill to Victoria and Blackfriars making it an ideal place for commuters.
There are many schools
including primary and secondary, special schools, religious schools and grammar schools. Ofsted ratings have been generally positive with many schools attaining ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ scores.
