Worth a visit if you are in the area. Amazing views and really nice woodland trails. Then wonder back to the shop parade for a lovely Monmouth coffee at hills and parkes

The view is stunning, there's benches and other facilities at the top. Only takes 10 to climb up! A perfect getaway from cars and the town stress

You wouldn't want to travel miles to visit this pleasant wooded hill near Honor Oak Park station, but it's certainly worth climbing if you are in the area, for example visiting Horniman Gardens or Nunhead Cemetery, both about 15 minutes walk away along the Green Chain Walk. The Green Chain Walker links South East London's green spaces and traverses Lone Tree Hill (http://www.greenchain.com/walks/section-11.php). The hill is covered in pleasant woodland and a good place to go blackberrying in the autumn.

The first Queen Elizabeth is supposed to have stopped to rest here by the original "Honor Oak" at the top of the hill and there are still remnants of First World War defences up here. The most interesting aspect of the Hill's history is the battles that took place in 1897 when a local golf club purchased and attempted to enclose the hill: thousands of people gathered to protest and tore down fences to preserve this valued green space. The stand-off ended with the compulsory purchase of the land by Camberwell Borough Council, after which it became a park and subsequently a nature reserve. St Augustine One Tree Hill is a striking if slightly dilapidated Anglican Church that impersonates a country church amidst the One Tree Hill woodland.

The best thing about One Tree Hill is the impressive views over central London from the area at the top with the old Zeppelin gun placements.
