The Secret History Of Our Streets: Camberwell Grove
Wednesday 13 June
The second episode features Camberwell Grove. Today the Grove is an elegant oddity; a broad, leafy street of fine Georgian houses set in the heart of the inner city. Through its long history the Grove has come full circle from middle class prosperity; to tight knit working class community and back to middle class affluence again.
Through the lively, often passionate accounts of residents past and present the film tells the story of the changing faces of this remarkable street and the people who have lived in and loved its beautiful houses. It also reveals how the fate of the Grove was intimately bound up with the monstrous growth of the Victorian city of London and the birth of the modern conservation movement.
