Welcome to London Road, in Croydon, South London.
London Road is a place that started as countryside, but today has become a bustling place filled with shops, community services, and passing traffic of all sorts.
It is also a home to many, including some of our team here at Turf Projects!
We are working with Croydon Council and their design team to find out what improvements local people would like see in public spaces along London Road from Broad Green in the South to Norbury in the North. You can find out more about this project on the Council’s website here.
The team includes CarverHaggard, The Means, and BOB Design.
Using the resources below, share your memories of the local area and show us your dream future London Road…
In PAST, PRESENT, FUTURE LONDON ROAD, tell us your stories through drawing, and see your ideas come to life in our collaborative mural and street collage.
Try your hand at our LONDON ROAD ONLINE TREASURE TRAIL activity guide, collecting nuggets of history through our audio tour of the street and inventing your own future landmarks to make your own map of the neighbourhood. Follow along with the audio tour on Google Street View, or make the journey in your mind’s eye.
We’d love to see what you’ve produced!
