"Located below an anonymous block of flats called Pear Tree House in Upper Norwood was a secret Civil Defence bunker from the Cold War. The bunker was not secret for long and was frequently daubed with CND stickers, before it was closed after pressure from the self-declared nuclear free Lambeth council in 1993."

Crystal Palace is a wonderful place for families, with quick commutes and the wide green spaces...

What locals say about Upper Norwood

  1. In the chaos of the city, the area has the charm of a village, the chaos of the city, the greenery associated with England, eclectic mix of cultures and the most fabulous view of the London skyline

  2. For me, the best part of living in Upper Nor wood is walking in the recreation ground after the grass has been mowed and the shrubs pruned.

About Upper Norwood

Upper Norwood is an area of South London within the London Boroughs of Bromley, Croydon and Lambeth. It is located north of Croydon. Upper Norwood is situated along the London clay ridge known as Beulah Hill. Most housing stock dates from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries with large detached properties on the peak of the ridge and smaller semi-detached and terraced dwelling on its flanks. The hill offers panoramic views northward to central London and southward to central Croydon and the North Downs. The area is one of the highest in the London area and for centuries was occupied by the Great North Wood, an extensive area of natural oak forest which formed a wilderness close to the southern edge of the ever-expanding city of London. The name 'Norwood' comes from a contraction of the 'North Wood'. The area still retains large amounts of woodland for an urban situation.
