Dulwich Woods and the adjacent Sydenham Hill Wood are survivors of the Great North Wood, which once covered large tracts of land here, a chain of oak woods and wooded commons that extended from Selhurst to Brockley. The woods survived until the development of Crystal Palace in the mid C19th, which led to some loss to housing development.
