Hidden Gems - a free guided tour

Part of WNC Open Day and ChooSE27 Festival
Join tour guide Caroline Swan for an exploration of some of this vast cemetery's most impressive monuments, and some of its hidden gems too! This tour will tell the story of the cemetery itself - from one of Victorian London's most prestigious burial places to a post-war ruin, to the work being done to bring the cemetery back as a gem at the heart of the SE27 community. Caroline is passionate about London's historic burial grounds and has many stories to tell about the people buried at West Norwood and symbolism of their graves. The tour will last approximately one hour.
