It was constituted in 1848; and it has a post office‡ under Camberwell, London S, and a r. station. Pop., 5, 249. Houses, 895. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Winchester. Value, £700. Patrons, Trustees. The church was built by A. Gough; and there is a grammar-school.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Denmark Hill has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Southwark. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Denmark Hill and units named after it.
