  1. About Telegraph Hill

    Telegraph Hill is a place just south of New Cross in the London Borough of Lewisham in southeast London. The hill rises to around 30 metres. It was formerly known as Plowed Garlic Hill. It gained its current name from a semaphore telegraph station which was constructed on the summit of the hill circa 1795. The signalling station was one of the points from which news of Wellington's victory at Waterloo was flashed to London. It was removed in 1823.
