The great Antarctic Explorer lived here for a time.

Location: Aberdeen House, 12 Westwood Hill, Sydenham, Lond

Description: Sir Ernest Shackleton the Antarctic Explorer (1874-1922) lived here in the 1880s and was one of Sydenham's best-known residents.

Ernest was knighted for the achievements of the British Antarctic Expedition (1907-09) under his command, but he is now chiefly remembered for his Antarctic expedition of 1914-1916 in the ship Endurance, which is colloquially known as Shackleton's Expedition.

Aberdeen House on Westwood Hill, was the boyhood home of Ernest Shackleton. His father Henry Shackleton was an unsuccessful Anglo-Irish farmer from County Kildare. Henry retrained as a family doctor and moved to Croydon in 1884. Six months later he, and his young family, moved and settled in Sydenham at Aberdeen House. They were not poor, but money was always a hard restraint on the lives of both Henry & Ernest.
