Some, such as the first, a tour of Anerley and Penge, are conducted as part of local festivals (in this case, the Crystal Palace Overground Festival). All have a Norwood Society local historian as a guide.
And all of them take in matters of local history and interest on a rich and varied range of subjects, from one of the long forgotten rivers of London to Sherlock Holmes’s connections with the area.
