Block Management Sydenham
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Sydenham .
History of Sydenham
Sydenham is located in south-east London. The original name comes from Old English: in 1206 the area was known as Chipeham, and then named as Shippenham.
In Medieval times, Sydenham was heavily wooded, with only a few cottages in the woods, set along a rough, basic road. The locals grazed cattle, sheep and pigs, and collected wood for fuel, and drank cider from apple and pear orchards.
At the eastern end of Sydenham Road, Place House was built, circa 1580, for the Earl of Sussex. The Manor of Sydenham was an administrative centre, which served as a large agricultural estate. This dominated the economy of the area, from the Medieval period until the 17th century.
In 1615, locals of Sydenham organised a petition and marched to the City of London, as a protest, to persuade King James I to prevent the enclosure of the common. Their protest proved successful, and the locals continued to use the land.

What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Sydenham
The Greyhound Pub at Sydenham is a delightful experience for anyone who enjoys a Sunday roast. I thoroughly enjoyed my well-done steak, with a good selection of vegetables, potatoes and gravy. I was impressed with the drinks menu, which had a great choice of options.

Sydenham - Cultural Scene
The mid 19th century brought Sydenham the benefits of shops, inns, schools, and churches. The Golden Lion, originally an inn, became a Music Hall Palace of Varieties.
Parks were established: The Recreation Ground (Mayow Park) in 1878 and Home Park in 1901. The steel magnate Andrew Carnegie sponsored seven new libraries, for the newly established Borough of Lewisham. All of these libraries remain, to this day.
The Thorpes Estate was an Edwardian development of six roads, constructed from 1901 to 1914. The original estate was designated as Sydenham Thorpes Conservation Area in 2001. The residential and commercial buildings maintain a consistency, uniformity and cohesiveness in features and details. The style of building was inspired by Queen Anne, and led to the Georgian revival in architecture.
Sydenham Railway station remains to this day, as the focus for the community.
