Salters Hill ? HELP !

Post by tulse hill terry » 23 Apr 2015 09:09

This view is driving me round the bend trying to locate, I'd always thought it was a view of Salters Hill from what is now Norwood Park, but there were never terrace houses built there !

Wrong side of Crystal Palace I know - but can anyone help ? ! ? ! ? ! ?

It's taken me a while as those houses have been demolished and rebuilt and the land in the foreground was built upon in long ago but its definitely St Gothard Road as confirmed here: http://landmark.lambeth.gov.uk/display_ ... s&id=11234 and is about 400 yards north west of Norwood Park

I used to live around the corner on Rommany Road. The four gables of Kingswood Primary School are clear (mid right of photo) which backs onto the Park.
