A Brief History of the Area
The area around Oakdene was in the early 19th century was a large estate. The boundary of the estate was marked by a series of oak trees running diagonally from the corner of Bampton Road at its junction with Dacres Road, near Forest Hill School, near Mayow Park towards the corner of Dacres Road and Perry Vale (towards the station. There is still evidence of these oak trees – a stump of one can be seen in the front garden of Oakdene, as well as one in the rear of its garden in the NW corner. The remaining oak trees are thought to be over 150 years old.
It seems that the break up of the estate came in the late 19th century – see title deeds, in that a number of large Victorian houses were built in the area. The only remaining Victorian house on Inglemere Road is the ‘Vicarage’- number 26 (next door to The Hawthornes), the third house from the LHS of the map of 1914 (above I N).
In 1936-37 the two houses known and Oakdene and Hawthornes were built on the plot to the LHS on the Vicarage, with the previous house being pulled down – reason not known. An early resident of Oakdene, which was rented by the French Embassy, was its First Secretary (his crests are reproduced on the front windows). He had two staff (accommodated in bedrooms 3 and 4), as I understand, and thus the bell system (the calling box is still in the kitchen, with a token button in the dining room).
In 1944 the German bombers were unable to attack St Pauls Cathedral due to the ack-ack barrage. Consequently, heading south east to Germany, the bombers dropped their bombs in this area. The three houses on Inglemere survived, as did some on Dacres Road towards the station. However, the Bonheoffer church did not.
