Denmark Hill and Camberwell Walk

This Sunday at 2.30 in the afternoon I’ll be leading a guided walk around Denmark Hill and Camberwell. It’s a public walk, so everyone is welcome to come along. It costs £9 per adult, £7 for over 65s and full-time students. Meet me outside Denmark Hill Station. I’ll have a clutch of London Walks leaflets with me.

Of course Camberwell had its few minutes of fame the other week when Camberwell Grove was featured on BBC’s The Secret History of Our Streets. If you missed it, click here, the programme is still available on BBC iplayer for the next few days.

Mendelssohn used to come to Camberwell, though he didn’t stay in Camberwell Grove. You may recognise this piece he composed during one of his visits.

Its original title was Camberwell Green. As Michael Caine, whose name also crops up on this walk, might say, not many people know that.
