Norwood Green

Norwood Green is a diverse and vibrant community but retains something of its rural past, and its sustained wealth. 

The Green itself is a popular recreation area, and the space where residents still hold an annual Village day. Norwood Green’s historic buildings include St Mary’s Church, the Plough Public House, and the Norwood Free School established in the 1700’s where girls could study.

Grade 11, Norwood Hall was designed by the renowned architect Sir John Soane in 1801. It was the residence of his friend John Robbins, and Robbins tomb, also designed by Soane, can be seen in the graveyard of St Marys.    

Other listed buildings include grand Georgian Houses, whose former residents include the founder of a famous

London department store, and a well- known actress from a large theatrical family.    

Norwood Green is a conservation area. Walks can be expanded to include the surrounding open spaces, Three Bridges, Warren Farm, Tentelow Woods and neighbouring Osterley House and Park
