The park is also home to a rather unusual collection of sculptures of prehistoric animals. They were made in 1854 just after the crystal palace was moved from Hyde Park and were the first dinosaur sculptures in the world.
The Crystal Palace athletic stadium is also on the same site.
On Sunday morning we walked into West Norwood to the 'FEAST' which is a collection of stalls all around the town selling food and crafts. We also walked through the cemetery which was fascinating, full of very grand Victorian family vaults including the Tates (Tate and Lyle, Tate Gallery) and Henry Doulton (pottery) both of which are built of terracotta and have mosaic ceilings.
Back home now but looking forward to going again later in the year.
