It’s always midday.. or midnight

snipimage2Our local clock on St Luke’s tower, and key local landmark,  is always set at just about 12 o’clock. There is a campaign to raise £37k to get this Vulliamy clock, dating back to 1827, working again.

Trusts have donated most of the money required and only another £8k is needed to start the works. To help get the clock working again please donate what you can through : https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stlukesclock

For more details on the history  of the clock and restoration project see:  http://synchronome.org.uk/stlukes.pdf

Walk our local history in Norwood

Cemetery tours every first Sunday

Cemetery tours every first Sunday

There are traces of Norwood’s past  everywhere and a great way to find out more is to join a free history walk led by local experts. Every first Sunday of the month there is a guided tour of history of West Norwood Cemetery at 2.30pm http://www.fownc.org/. We can see Henry Tate’s gardens in May or September. There are tours of West Norwood & Upper Norwood in June, July & August. And if you are curious about the hidden river Effra put 11th and 25th September in your diary.

Details of  these walks on our Events page
