Few little facts about West-Norwood
West Norwood is situated in the London Borough of Lambeth. Before 1885 West Norwood was known as Lower Norwood, in contrast to Upper Norwood and South Norwood. It is primarily a residential suburb of south London but with some light industry near Knights Hill in the south.
West Norwood is well served for parks and open spaces with Norwood Park and Brockwell Park which is only a short walk outside the town centre area. The Cemetery has 45 acres (18.2 hectares) of green space in the centre of the town. There are tennis courts, a recreation ground and a small wood beside Knights Hill. Peabody Hill Wood is an area of outstanding importance recognised by English Nature.
West Norwood is also home to L'Arche Lambeth, a L'Arche Community founded in 1977 by Therese Vanier.
West Norwood has an association with a number of clocks. St Luke's churchtower clock was supplied by Vulliamy, the Royal Clockmaker, in 1825 for £357 and was retained by Street when he rebuilt the church in 1870, new tubular bells being added in 1892.
Some notable residents include former Mayer of London Ken Livingstone, The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, and former Vicar of Holy Trinity Church and Tom Utley, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail journalist.
