A Little Bit About Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace is named after the former local landmark, The Crystal Palace, which occupied the area from 1854 to 1936. The includes one of the highest points in London, at 367 feet (112 m), offering views over the capital. The district was a natural oak forest until development began in the 19th century and before the arrival of The Crystal Palace the area was known as Sydenham Hill. After The Crystal Palace burned down in 1936, the site of the building and its grounds became Crystal Palace Park, which is now home to the National Sports Centre, containing an athletics track, stadium and other sports facilities. Two television transmitter masts make the district a landmark location, visible from many parts of Greater London.
Crystal Palace still retains much of its Victorian architecture, although housing styles are mixed, including Victorian terraces, mid-war terraces and blocks of modern flats. Crystal Palace Park is surrounded by grand Victorian villas, many of which have been converted into flats and apartments. Crystal Palace Park is a large Victorian pleasure ground occupying much of the land within Crystal Palace and is one of the major London public parks. The park was formerly used for motor racing and has been used for concerts, often performed at the site of the Crystal Palace Park Concert Platform.
The Italian Job has a scene filmed at the athletics track in the Crystal Palace sports centre, in which Michael Caine says, “You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!” The Pleasure Garden was also filmed in the park and Our Mother’s House has a scene featuring Dirk Bogarde with several children on the park’s boating lake. Crystal Palace has had a long association with sports and Crystal Palace F.C. (1861) was one of the 12 founder members of The Football Association. The original football club disappeared from records in 1876 and it was not until 1905 that the current Crystal Palace F.C. club was re-formed. The club played on the grounds of The Crystal Palace, on what is now the site of the National Sports Centre, until it moved to Selhurt in 1918. The grounds also hosted the FA Cup Final between 1895 and 1914. Despite the move to Selhurst, the club retained the Crystal Palace name, which is in use to the present day. The historical grounds also hosted the first England Rugby Union match against New Zealand in 1905, which New Zealand won by 15-0, and the short-lived London County Cricket Club. In 1964, a 15,500 seater athletics stadium and sports centre was built on the site of the football grounds in Crystal Palace Park. The athletics stadium was known as the National Sports Centre and between 1999 and 2012 hosted the London Athletics Grand Prix among other international athletics meetings.
