New Ruskin Tree Walk

The new Ruskin Tree Walk is now available. Go to the Ruskin Tree Walk page for downloads and the map.

The walk is in the form of a collection of essays by leading John Ruskin experts on aspects of his philosophies on nature, along with a map of the route through Ruskin Park. The essays include illustrations, some by local artists, others by Ruskin himself.

The Camberwell Society was formed in 1970 and is the recognised amenity society for those living, working or interested in Camberwell.

The Society’s objectives, as defined by our constitution, are: to stimulate public interest in Camberwell, to promote high standards of planning and architecture in Camberwell, and to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest in Camberwell.

We are a charity and raise money for local charities. In the past we have raised money for Southside Rehabilitation Association, St Giles Trust, Cambridge House, the CamberwellCommunity Choir, the HollingtonYouth Centre and the Camberwell Arts Festival
