Upper Norwood was a rural area until the mid 19th century when the 'Crystal Palace' was re-erected at the top of Anerley Hill. This brought visitors, railways & new residents and changed the area completely.

There are places for refreshments in the Norwood Triangle at the start/finish.

The walk is 3 miles on various surfaces. This walk combines the area's attractive parks and woods with the 'Norwood Triangle'. The Croydon Borough includes several conservation areas. With its elevated position there are some fine views across London but also some hills to climb! [Route & what to see]
