The Great North Wood was a natural oak woodland that started three miles (4.8 km) south-east of central London and scaled the Norwood Ridge. At its full extent, the wood's boundaries stretched almost as far as Croydon and as far north as Camberwell. It had occasional landownings as large clearings, well-established by the Middle Ages such as the hamlets of Penge and Dulwich. Twenty small fragments or re-plantations remain including Dulwich Wood, Sydenham Hill Wood, Biggin Wood and Beaulieu Heights.

dbo:abstract
  • Der Great North Wood war ein Eichenwald, der den größten Teil der Hochebene, die 6 km südlich der City of London begann, und den Bergrücken von sowie die südlichen Ausläufer des River Effra und seiner Nebenflüsse bedeckte. Insgesamt erstreckte sich der Wald von Croydon bis Camberwell. Von dem ursprünglichen Wald ist nur noch wenig übrig, aber Ortsnamen, die das Wort Norwood enthalten, erinnern an ihn. Dies sind South Norwood, Upper Norwood, West Norwood (bis 1885 als Lower Norwood bekannt).Das „Nord“ im Namen Norwood deutet darauf hin, dass hier die Bindung an das südlich des Waldes gelegene Croydon offenbar stärker war als die an Lambeth oder London.

Twenty small fragments or re-plantations remain including Dulwich Wood, Sydenham Hill Wood, Biggin Wood and Beaulieu Heights. Many placenames refer to the Great North Wood. Today's suburban placenames that contain the contraction Norwood include South Norwood, Upper Norwood and West Norwood (known as Lower Norwood until 1885). Other settlements that reflect the area's woodland past are Woodside, Forest Hill, and Honor Oak. (en)
