Convent Hill, Upper Norwood
Convent Hill, Upper Norwood
The name Norwood covers an extensive area of south London suburbia - normally divided into West Norwood, Upper Norwood and South Norwood; it derives from the Great North Wood that covered the district before it was built up in the 19th and 20th centuries. Classic London inter-war semi-detached houses are common including these seen here on Convent Hill at the junction with Beaumont Road. As the name implies it is on a hill, sloping down from Beulah Hill towards Convent Wood which takes its name from the Catholic Convent and Church of Virgo Fidelis built in 1842.
