A Brief History of THE STREATHAM HILL

Streatham Hill’s history reaches back to Roman times, and the main feature of the area is the High Road, a Roman road which established Streatham as a place.  Its name was given by Saxon settlers during the 5th century, meaning “the settlement by the road”. The summit of Brixton Hill is the probable location of "Brixistane", the marker stone for the meeting place of the Brixton Hundred in Saxon times
