Description: It is hard to imagine that much of the suburban townscape from Croydon to the Thames at Deptford was a vast wood, stretching for almost seven miles. This compelling narrative history charts the fortunes of the North Wood from the earliest times: its ecology, ownership, management, and its gradual encroachment by the expanding metropolis.
