Beulah Hill



This road was one of the ancient thoroughfares of Croydon and when the Town Improvement Commissioners were appointed in 1829 one of the first things they did was to take responsibility for this road and confirm the part west of Westow Hill as Biggin Hill Road. In November 1854 the Croydon Board of Health decided to change the name to Beulah Hill.

Building of the street
Originally the road ran across the mostly wooded Norwood Common which was all that was left of the Great North Wood in Croydon and this is shown clearly on the Inclosure Map of 1800. By the time the name change took place there was an almost continuous line of large Victorian villas in extensive grounds lining much of the road, particularly on the south side. There were only a few properties on the northern side.  See 1863 map.
