The Wood That Built London: Goat House

Beyond these, a 571-acre woodland is labelled ‘Croydon Woods called Norwood’; on it, a later hand has pencilled ‘open common’. Cutting into it from the north is a nineteen-acre triangular enclosure, with farm buildings, labelled Shelverdine, alias Goat House – a name that survives today in the Goat House pub in Norwood.
