A district in the South of London, in teh SW12 postcode area, Balham has its roots in the Roman period, when the area contained part of Stane Street. It was first identified as a settlement in the Domesday book, producing £2 a year for its owner. In the 17th century, Balham village was part of the local parish of Streatham, and was known as Balham Manor. As London city gradually expanded, the rich and noble people began to settle in the area of Balham, although the village area did not become a full part of London until a railway station was built in the Victorian era. Part of this became Balham tube station, which was hit by a bomb in October 1940, resulting in the deaths of 64 people.
The District of Balham is surrounded by four of the larger South London Commons, with Tooting Bec Common in the East, Tooting Graveney in the south, Clapham common in the north, and Wandsworth common touching Balham in the West. It is also not far away from the Battersea area. Due to the closeness of these commons, the district has many visitors, and people passing through the area in order to walk through these London parks.
Culture in Balham has, since the Second World War, been a centre of the Polish Community in England. The traditional Polish dance 'Zabawa' draws people into the district on Saturday nights, and the Polish Church nearby is full to bursting on the following Sunday morning. Alongside the Polish community live small groups of Somalian and Brazilian settlers in Britain, making the district an interesting multicultural mix. Visitors to the area can enjoy the combination of cultures by trying out different foods, nightclubs and art from Balham, or enjoy the Balham food festival, which first took place in 2011.
Perhaps Balham's biggest claim to fame is being featured on The Third Division in a sketch narrated by Peter Sellers. “Balham, Gateway to the South” is a parody of many American travelogues of the time, and was written by the comedy pairing of Frank Muir and Dennis Norden. In more recent times, Balham's famous Du Cane Court has been used as a background to the Poirot series on TV. A number of famous actors, actresses and comedians live in the area, particularly around the Du Cane Court apartments, most noticeably Arthur Smith. Balham also features in part of Ian McEwan's novel Atonement, which refers to the tube bomb of 1940.
