The Society represents all parts of Dulwich, North, South, East and West. It has a number of volunteer groups which actively seek improvements in public transport infrastructure and traffic (for car drivers, cyclists and pedestrians), architecture and design, trees, gardens, wildlife habitats and nature/species conservation. We comment regularly on Council planning applications and are also a consultee for the Dulwich Estate on all changes to properties within the Estate’s Scheme of Management. We encourage change, and welcome good design appropriate to its setting, but actively defend Dulwich against the pressures of inappropriate development.
The Society publishes a widely read quarterly Journal and a monthly eNewsletter as well as books on local themes – last year it published one on local pubs. Increasingly the Society undertakes its own projects, the most recent one was an area-wide series of plaques to commemorate those killed by bombing in WW2 - we are also currently progressing a series of local history information boards, and funding part of the ongoing maintenance in the Sydenham Hill Wood. The Society initiated the public meeting that led to the successful re-opening of the Herne Hill Velodrome and worked closely with the Heritage of London Trust (HOLT) on the reconstruction of the iconic Concrete House in Lordship Lane. In addition, it enabled the refurbishment of Rosebery Lodge in Dulwich Park as a community facility and contributed towards the reconstruction of the children’s playground there. It re-erected the historic red post at the top of Red Post Hill, Lodge and, in 2016 it organised public access to the...
Dulwich possesses an important art collection at the world-renowned Dulwich Picture Gallery, London’s last remaining tollgate, a successful local football team, Dulwich Hamlet, several good historic pubs and a cinema (many of the early British silent movies were filmed in the area). There are a huge number of excellent schools, several busy shopping areas, and a wide range of housing – from the denser developments in East and West Dulwich, to the mid-century modern estates in South Dulwich, and the larger properties in North Dulwich and the Village. It also has a number of attractive parks, sports grounds, and a golf course - not forgetting one of the last remaining parts of the Great North Wood - visitors who look at the sweep of these woods along the top of Sydenham Hill find it hard to believe they are within five miles of Charing Cross.
The Dulwich Society Constitution (The Rules of the Dulwich Society) was adopted 12th March 1964. The most recent version of the constitution was last amended on 7th May 2019 (PDF) The Society Annual Report and Accounts can be found on these Charity Commission pages: apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/.. and beta.charitycommission.gov.uk/.. 1.

The Society welcomes participation by members in running its activities, either as members of its sub-committees or as members of the Executive Committee. The Society’s sub-committees deal with specific activities and interests, such as Planning and Architecture, Local History and Trees. Details of their activities and contact email addresses for their Chairs are set out in this website. If you are interested in joining a sub-committee, please contact the relevant Chair (or the Executive Chairman or Secretary). You would typically then be invited to meet the Chair and to attend the next sub-committee meeting as a guest. A decision would then be made whether to invite you to join the sub-committee at that point, based on an assessment of your potential contribution and on the need for a balance of views and skills within the sub-committee. The Executive Committee manages the Society’s overall activities, with its members being Trustees of The Dulwich Society, a registered charity. Me...
