The Walsall Advertiser 15/10/1898: The old Greyhound Inn at Dulwich has been demolished. Soon the ground on which it stood, and the field where many a merry gathering has been held, will be covered over with rows of trim villas. The Greyhound was one of the four famous inns in Dulwich and was kept in the hands of one family for more than one hundred years. The Dulwich club, established in 1772, met at the Greyhound. It was a society mostly of literary men, formed for convivial intercourse. During its life the club entertained Dr Glennie, Campbell, Dickens, Thackeray, Mark Lemon, and many other celebrities. **
