First Camberwell tree walk

During the course of this 35-40 minute walk you will be guided through five parks and gardens close to St Giles Church in the centre of Camberwell. Representatives of local friends groups looking after these open spaces have chosen eight trees that are remarkable because of their size, local history, unusual appearance, or just because they are wonderful examples of their species.
