The Wood that Built London: A Human History of the Great North Wood
September 12, 2023, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Author C.J. Schüler presents his book exploring the vast woods which were intensively managed for a thousand years, providing timber for construction, furniture and shipbuilding, and charcoal for London’s blacksmiths, kilns and bakeries. Now they afford important green space, a vital habitat for small mammals, birds and insects.
The Great North Wood gave its name to Norwood.
Event organised by the Friends of Carnegie Library as part of the Lambeth Heritage Festival
