"Croydon Airport was once one of the world's major airports and the first to introduce Air Traffic Control."

Sometimes when I visit the waterfall in Grove Park, it's hard to believe that it is in London!

No longer in use, Croydon Airport was once a major international airport that now houses a visitor centre.
