Norwood Street Histories is a new project to bring to life the history of the streets in the Norwood Area. Local history studies demonstrate that ordinary streets can have interesting histories, and be as worthy of care as celebrated areas.
The Norwood Society is working with local volunteers to establish a database from census records, and street directories to explain landownership, historical development of buildings in the street, architectural features, notable buildings, and information about who the local occupants were.
Initial research is being focused on streets in the Harold Road Conservation area – Rockmount Road, Vermont Road, South Vale and Harold Road and others in Lambeth and Bromley boroughs – Woodland Road, Woodland Hill, Berridge Road, Cawnpore (George) Street, Barnfield Road and Cintra Park. Monthly meetings are held to discus progress, ideas and resources.
We will be launching to the public autumn 2019.
