On the Capital Ring
On the Capital Ring
This view is from the Capital Ring between Biggin Wood and Norwood Grove, just after it leaves the former, and looks down Bigginwood Road. It gives a hint of the fine views to be had when Norwood Grove is reached. At the time that Norwood Grove was under threat of being built on, the local residents launched a fighting fund and set up a committee under the chairmanship of Mr. Stenton Covington who worked hard to make a successful national appeal. Covington Way, which is followed from here to Norwood Grove, is named after him.
