Grange Road



Today Grange Road stretches from the High Street Thornton Heath to Beulah Hill but originally it was only the part north of Grange Road that had this name, the section in Upper Norwood. In the middle of the C19th most of the slopes of Beulah Hill were still wooded and the area west of this road was part of the grounds of Beulah Spa.

Whilst the southern section of Grange Road had yet to be built on as the section beside Garange Wood was under the control of Mr Charles Hood who lived in Grangewood House.
